The pandemic and national/global current events have changed the conversation around mental health at work.
According to Mental Health America, violence—including gun violence—and fear of violence causes both trauma and ‘toxic stress,’ which is a contributing factor to the development of some mental health conditions.
As the mental health awareness month of May concludes organizations must continue to develop sustainable, impactful, and mental wellness health initiatives to best serve their workforce.
