Mental Health in the Workplace

Many of us spend 40 or more hours a week at work, so it is unsurprising that the workplace affects our mental health and well-being. The first half of this 1-hour webinar will look at improving workplace mental health and wellbeing following the U.S. Surgeon General framework of 5 essential components for workplace mental health and wellbeing. The second half will explore the eight dimensions of health from SAHMSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) we can use as individuals to improve our mental health and well-being. We'll also explore resources related to mental health and well-being from the National Library of Medicine, the National Institutes of Health, and other organizations.

This presentation focuses on providing equal access to biomedical information and improving the public's access to information in order to enable individuals to make informed decisions about their health by increasing awareness of or access to health information resources and data. The presentation includes MedlinePlus resources related to mental health, environmental health, fitness and exercise, food and nutrition, personal health issues, social and family issues, wellness, and lifestyle, as well as resources from the National Institute on Mental Health and the National Institute of Health.
