COVID-19’s impact has created additional anxiety for those with existing mental health challenges, as well as effecting people without previous struggles. When employees don’t feel safe, supported, or emotionally/financially secure, it’s difficult to be effective on the job, wherever that may be.
Our data has shown that on average, 20-25% of employees suffer from depression and/or anxiety. And that’s just those that have been identified and are seeking help or treatment! Due to the stress and uncertainty of our current crisis, these numbers are increasing every day.
This year’s Mental Health Month Toolkit is focused on resiliency, including tools we all have to adapt with social distancing.
- Printable Handouts and Downloadable PDF’s to Email, Post and Share
- Mental Health Online Screen Assessment
- Media Materials
- Social Media and Web Components

If you’d like to set up a call to discuss how to best leverage this toolkit or any other virtual modifications in wellness programs and health promotion initiatives, let our Population Health team know by emailing, email@example.com.
Until then, be sure to take care of your own mental health and know our team is here to support in whatever ways we can.
