Employees struggling with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and/or stress need help. Many do not know that their employer has many resources available. An EAP (Employee Assistance Program) and behavioral health counseling through telehealth are great offerings – but only if they are known and utilized.
Make it a priority to promote your EAP or other behavioral health services. Monthly email reminders, posters and testimonials are great promotional tools.
Below are options to consider implementing in your workplace:
|Promote at staff meetings, have managers promoting within their own departments.
|Table tents in breakrooms
|Be aware of any behavior changes in your employees and remind them of the services available.
|Employee Facebook page
|Health Fairs- invite EAP representative
|Share success stories
Plan ahead and promote your offerings to make this a stress-free holiday season for your employees and your workplace.
