Feeling stressed at work? You are not alone.

According to the Attitudes in the American Workplace VII report “80% of workers feel stress on the job, nearly half say they need help in learning how to manage stress and 42% say their coworkers need such help.”

This is why MHC created “Stress Management in the Workplace,” a workshop designed to help employees gain a comprehensive understanding of work-related stress, its effect on your mind and body, and how to proactively address and manage it in their professional lives.

While research from McKinsey & Company shows that 96% of employers are providing some sort of mental health resource to their staff, only 1 in 6 employees feel supported by these resources. As the old saying goes, “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.” Simply providing resources is not enough.

Did you know that April 28th is World Day for Safety and Health at Work?

MHC understands that safety and health go hand in hand in creating a workplace environment where people thrive. We also know that as leaders, we need to model the behavior and “set the tone” for our employees. In order to do this, we first need to be educated about burnout, workplace stressors, and mental health in general. We need to build strategies for implementing mental health focused initiatives and have a clear communication plan to best support our staff.

MHC’s training team with a combined 60+ years’ experience deploys evidence-based, certified, and custom created trainings to support our internal teams, as well as other workplace environments and community groups through unique trainings, presentations, and workshops.

MHC has converted several training curriculums and best practices used in the mental health arena for use in any workplace environment.

Workshops range from 60 minutes to a full-day training. Virtual, in-person, and blended options are available, and content is tailored to meet the needs of the attendees. Click here to access our full catalogue of Community Education Offerings.
