Make Mental Health a Priority

The Center for Workplace Mental Health exists to help employers create a more supportive workplace environment for their employees and advance mental health policies at their organizations.

We aim to be a practical resource to help employers improve workforce mental health in numerous ways from addressing stigma and increasing awareness about mental health and mental illnesses, to ensuring that company health, mental health, and disability management programs are designed and managed to produce the best possible outcomes.

Improve Caliber of Work, Quality of Life

It's our mission to promote awareness of mental health in the workplace and encourage employers to make positive change in the lives of their employee, while also benefitting their organization as a whole. That's why we provide useful information and resources to help in making the case for improved policies and program management.

Visit our Making the Business Case page for more information about how investing in workplace mental health is good for business.
