The Wellbeing Initiative helps organizations understand that there are many aspects of an individual that are as important as physical health such as mental, intellectual, spiritual, financial and social. By addressing all aspects, organizations can chart a path forward to better optimize personal wellbeing — and organizational performance.
Aligning Mental Health and Wellbeing
The National Alliance is working with coalitions and their employer members through assessments, workshops and seminars. This includes promoting an expanded wellbeing framework for organizations, a whitepaper, and other activities to further highlight the connection between mental health and wellbeing — an area the National Alliance has helped bring onto the national radar. With most adults spending about one-third of their time at work, employers are in a unique position to improve mental health and wellbeing. Human resources and benefit executives can play a powerful role in developing organizational strategies that improve employee wellbeing and mental health.
Our Next Steps
The National Alliance continuously considers employer-focused activities and collaborative learning exercises that bring employers together to learn from one another about the importance of aligning mental health and wellbeing.
