Even before COVID-19 so dramatically affected our lives and our workforces, an estimated 264 million people around the world suffered from depression (American Heart Association). With global rates of depression and anxiety increasing 15-20% over the last decade, behavioral health has always been important (World Health Organization). But in light of the current health crisis, business owners and leaders no longer have the option of not addressing the impact mental health and substance misuse can have on their employees.
In this webinar, MindWise’s Director of Behavioral Health Consulting, Lisa Desai, Psy.D., will discuss how executives can support the behavioral health of their employees by understanding:
- what anxiety and depression really looks like
- how it shows up at work (absenteeism, presenteeism, etc.)
- how leaders can address it remotely and in-person
- how to think about long-term, systemic change
