Session Title: Mental Health and a Stressed-Out Workplace:Managing Invisible Disabilities with Visible Impacts
Session Description: The National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI) reports that one in five adults – or approximately 43.8 million Americans – experience mental illness in any given year. Employers are seeing more and more accommodation requests with workers’ compensation claims related to workload and stress on the rise. This means lost productivity, and less innovation in our organizations. Today, too much leave goes unmanaged, tolerated and simply not budgeted for. This session invites employers to think differently. From investing in EAP services and staffing correctly to managing leave appropriately, learn how to not only take a new approach, but get real tools to put programs in place that work. Participants will leave the presentation with an understanding of FEHA/ADA law as it relates to mental and psychological disability compliance. Importantly, they will walk away with a practical and implementable process – the Disability Interactive Process Hallway® that will help you identify the best way to support individual employees.
