Mental well-being is center stage in the wake of an ongoing pandemic, social unrest, and the strained economy. From essential workers being mentally and physically taxed to home-bound parents juggling work and caregiving, the need for mental health services has never been more critical.
The prevalence of depression and anxiety has skyrocketed, but there is no aggregated, one-size-fits-all solution to address these new challenges at an individual or global level. Mental health challenges are unique from one person to the next, as are the reasons for seeking or not seeking treatment. Shared and individual barriers (e.g. stigma, denial, lack of social proof, competing demands, and more) have and continue to prevent employees from using employer-sponsored mental health services, even when they need it most.
Companies must reconcile factors like availability, privacy, and cost with the individualized needs and engagement challenges of their employees. Employees, in turn, want leadership to be responsive, sensitive, and proactive when it comes to removing barriers around mental wellness and accessing services. So, how can a company take care of their employees while ensuring the continuity of their business? Where do they start?
