Managers can most effectively motivate and engage employees to procure their best work when they create supportive environments that foster mentally healthy practices.

When an employer recognizes a mental health issue in the workplace they should immediately provide education and awareness to all employees about mental health and make them aware to their Employee’s Assistance Program (EAP) provider.

Research indicates that around 50% of employees reported that individuals with mental illness experience stigma and discrimination as a result of their mental illness.

Creating a supportive environment is aimed at reducing this experience of discrimination.
