Supporting mental health and wellness is a priority for employers that are seeing an increase in people dying from "diseases of despair." Dr. Dan Jolivet, a psychologist and workplace possibilities practice consultant for The Standard, offers practical tips and guidance for employers that want to invest in the mental health and wellness of their employees, and how they can measure success. He talks about trauma-informed care, peer groups, ways to prepare managers, and how to ensure that employees know about and access resources. This podcast expands on issues Dr. Jolivet covers in his @Work magazine article including trauma-informed management, which is a helpful tool as employees return to office environments after working remotely for years due to the pandemic.
