Mental Health Policy
Poor mental health can affect work performance in the form of burnout, absenteeism, turnover, workplace violence and substance abuse. On the other hand, when workers have good mental health, they are better able to cope with the stresses of life, realize their own abilities, learn and work well and contribute actively to their communities.
The purpose of this policy from TechRepublic Premium is to provide guidelines that promote and support the mental health of all employees.
From the policy:
Workplace distress can significantly impact health and productivity. All employees are encouraged to proactively seek help if they are experiencing mental health challenges. Employees will be offered employee assistance programs, counseling services and mental health resources. There will be training to ensure that employees have access to these resources confidentially.
