Mind the Workplace Report
The 2022 Mind the Workplace Report by Mental Health America is a free resource that presents data from the Work Health Survey on the current state of employee mental health and well-being in the United States. The survey results strongly suggest that positive workplace mental health requires investment from all levels of an organization, and this report recommends best practices for doing so meaningfully.
Bell Seal for Workplace Mental Health
Mental Health America’s Bell Seal for Workplace Mental Health is a national certification program to recognize employers that are committed to creating mentally healthy workplaces. The Bell Seal evaluates and celebrates organizations that work proactively to improve mental wellness in the workplace and create supportive and positive environments for their employees. The recognition is awarded based on four categories of evaluation: workplace culture, benefits, compliance and wellness programs. It fosters organizational pride and optimism in both current and prospective employees. The applications to get Bell Seal Certified in 2023 open in October 2022.
Mental Health Toolkit
This toolkit from the Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion (EARN) offers a framework for creating a mental health-friendly workplace that acknowledges and understands mental health conditions for what they are: a non-visible disability. The framework is modeled around “4 A’s”: Awareness, Accommodations, Assistance and Access.
Center for Workplace Mental Health
The Center for Workplace Mental Health, a division of the American Psychiatric Association Foundation, works with organizations to make mental wellness a priority in their workplaces. They provide their network of over 10,000 employers with turn-key programs, toolkits, case studies, resources, publications and more, to help them create effective mental health policies for a more supportive workplace environment.
