    ABOUT WORKPLACE WELLNESS

    Good health leads to good business. Good health includes good mental health. It is estimated that the cost to American employers from lost productivity and absenteeism due to unaddressed mental health challenges is $80 to $100 billion annually.

    Mental wellness nurtures your overall well-being to enhance your quality of life. The Workplace Wellness Program and Toolkit at Mental Health America of Greater Houston is a workplace education and training program designed to help organizations create a culture of wellness that more effectively addresses and encourages mental health in the workplace.

    We offer training modules that have been evaluated as effective in reducing stigma, which is crucial for organizations to successfully manage mental health in the workplace. We frame workplace issues through the lens of psychological health and safety, disability rights, and human resources and business best practices.
