Employers are seeing more mental health issues in their workforce than ever before. Each year 1 in 5 adults is stricken with a mental illness (National Institute of Mental health), making mental illness an everyday reality for many of your employees. Yet, only 1 in 3 people seek help with their illness. The ADA, HIPPA, FMLA and most states’ human/civil rights department dictate how employers deal with employees’ with mental health problems. Privacy laws create challenges for employers to determine how serious a situation is and whether an employee poses a danger (though those with a mental illness pose no more risk of violence than those without a mental illness).

In 2016, the EEOC resolved 5000 disability-based claims dealing with mental health conditions costing employers approximately $20 million. With the increase in claims came an EEOC newly released Guidance on Mental Health Discrimination which is addressed to employees informing them of their employment rights under the ADA.

These are your employees—what are your responsibilities as a manager or HR professional in recognizing and helping them? How can you ensure your organization’s climate is a safe and healthy place rather than a climate that might exacerbate poor mental health? Join expert Susan Strauss to look into all these issues and help you create a safe and healthy workplace for your employees.
