Children, and therefore their caregivers, have been overwhelmed by stress and anxiety driven by the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact since the pandemic, emergency department visits for attempted suicide have risen 51% among adolescent girls, and studies show that students are 5 months behind in math and 4 months behind in reading when compared to students prior to the pandemic.
These stats alone show why parents and caregivers feel the stress constantly – at home and in the office. That’s why it shouldn’t be a surprise then when an employee’s work performance is less than ideal. As the employer, there are many things you can do to support not only your employee’s well-being, but also their family’s well-being. Join us to learn how you can improve the culture of your workplace while improving productivity including:
- How mental health contributes to total well-being
- Data trends related to mental health across our nation, and specifically with children and caregiver populations
- Best practices for building a supportive culture for mental health and the resources available to help.
This webinar will be recorded and sent to all who register post-event.
