Mental Health is an Important Issue in the Workplace

Mental health is an important issue in the workplace. It is a state of well-being in which an individual achieves his or her own potential, copes effectively with the normal challenges of life, and is able to work more efficiently and productively. To support Federal efforts, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management and U.S. Department of Health & Human Service’s Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration released a memorandum to Heads of Executive Department and Agencies, highlighting the importance of ensuring the workforce has access to the appropriate resources. The memorandum also included fact sheets for supervisors and employees. The fact sheets highlight key resources to increase awareness and access to services when needed. Below are links to the memorandum and fact sheets.
