An Individualized Approach for Supporting Employee Mental Health

June 6, 2022

The Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion published “Supporting Employee Mental Health and Wellbeing: The Importance of an Individualized Approach.” This learning guide on workplace mental health and wellbeing helps employers understand the importance of using an individualized approach to support employee mental health. It also looks at how an intersectional lens is needed to understand the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on employees’ mental health. It includes statistics on the increase in depression and anxiety among certain historically underserved populations, such as people with disabilities and the LGBTQ+ community. The guide has strategies employers can use to create a mental health-friendly workplace for employees from all backgrounds.
