Building Mental Health
Assisting organizations build wellness programs that help their employees, communities, and supporters maintain healthy lifestyles.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, one in five adults residing in the United States live with mental illness. Most employers in the United States offer wellness programs; however, many lack a mental health component. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found that the workplace can be an ideal location for activities designed to improve well-being among adults. Access to mental health and wellness programming may help limit instances absenteeism and might reduce episodes of depression and anxiety. According to The Partnership for Workplace Mental Health and The American Psychiatric Institute, “it costs companies $44 billion [per year] in lost productivity due to untreated depression in the workforce.1”
A Rhaea Hope, LLC is able to assist you with incorporating a mental health component as an integral part of your staff trainings. Our process is designed to address both absenteeism and elements of depression and anxiety which, if treated effectively could lead to greater employee engagement and productivity.
In the past, A Rhaea Hope, LLC has partnered with churches and agencies on ways to raise awareness of self-care, and broader mental health concerns with their constituent communities and supporters. As a facilitator, created a series of hands-on wellness trainings that are provided in person and virtually via webinars.
"When mental illness is left unmanaged, it can lead to a whole host of other workplace-related risks, such as increased accidents, workers’ compensation claims, disability, workplace violence, and even claims of harassment and discrimination—scenarios that have become ever so transparent in today’s world." - Tess Taylor
