A major impact of the Pandemic is that it has highlighted the employee mental health crisis. The negative impact for employers is alarming when employees are impaired with mental health and/or substance use disorders, especially if they are too scared to get the help they need. Many HR professionals know this is a problem but don't know how to address such a sensitive topic. You will learn from a seasoned licensed therapist how you can approach the topic of mental health in the most direct and sensitive way to elicit change and a seasoned HR Consultant how to stay within the bounds of employment law. Dr. Little and Krystal Yates will team up to share their expertise in a clear and simple way that will keep you engaged and that will provoke thought and discussion. This workshop will provide you with a clear understanding of how to manage your risk, what your responsibilities to your employees are and will help you identify several actions you can take that can quickly improve your outcomes in your company.
