Our society and our organizations are often evolving in a way that does not support the mental health and wellbeing of our workforces and communities. As technology and businesses have evolved, we have sometimes become more engaged 24/7, but more isolated. This has led to concerns about both chronic stress and loneliness as two key risk factors dramatically impacting our health and indirectly our satisfaction and performance at work.
The National Alliance is helping to set a collective agenda to “move mountains” for mental health in the workplace. Recognizing the concerns and opportunities, leading advocates and advocacy organizations have partnered together to define a framework to move the needle for mental health on a national level. This Initiative is helping to break the silence and advance an agenda of inclusion, quality and accountability so that stakeholders integrate mental health into a more holistic view of total health and wellbeing
