What is the role of employers in ensuring the mental health of their employees?
Employers play a key role in knowing about the energy level of their employees and ensuring they provide a safe space for workers — meaning workers know it is okay to seek help and ask for assistance when they are struggling with mental health issues.
What is the cost/risk to an organization if employees’ PTSD and other behavioral health issues aren’t addressed?
The cost can be devastating. Depending on the issues that trigger a worker, many people today suffer from PTSD and an employer may never know because people suffer in silence.
Key Takeaway from RIMS Session: Research has shown that PTSD changes the biology of the brain, and that may not ever go away. You may not know what kind of trauma has occurred in your employees’ lives.
