Forum Focus:

What do businesses gain by better addressing behavioral health in the workplace? Why is a case of the flu treated differently from depression? The panelists will address the challenges of allowing behavioral health disorders to go untreated and the resulting economic and human costs. Supporting employees who are grappling with mental health issues and the stigma associated with those issues is not insurmountable, but addressing them with a new perspective and supportive treatment options, is needed.

Those are just some of the topics that will be addressed during this forum. Attendees will leave having heard best practices, insights and considerations for assisting employees, and helping businesses to build a culture of health that ultimately aligns with business goals.
