Depression in the Workplace
Depression doesn't just affect those living with the condition. It can also hinder a company's overall productivity. Instead of struggling with the illness in the workplace entirely, employers can foster a positive environment that promotes good mental health. These days, most companies provide resources such as an employee assistance plan that will help employees connect with healthcare professionals who can help.
In addition, employers can encourage employees to take advantage of the resources available to them and actively works with those who need support with mental health issues.
Those interested in training for a community services career helping people with mental health or addiction issues can enroll in the Addictions and Community Services Worker program at CDI College. For more information, fill out the form on the right.
