Where To StartThe world is constantly changing – for better or for worse – and it can be overwhelming to deal with everything going on around you. While society is getting more comfortable discussing mental health, it can still be hard to know “Where to Start” when it comes to taking care of your own well-being.

 ACT by building your coping toolbox so you can manage stress, difficult emotions, and challenging situations.

 ADVOCATE to improve mental health for yourself, your friends and family, and your community.

Thursday, May 16 is Mental Health Action Day

A day founded to shift our mental health culture from awareness to action!

This movement is powered to spread the message that, just like our physical health, we can take actions to improve our mental health. This year, join thousands of partners who are empowering their employees to dedicate one hour to cultivating meaningful social connections. What can you do at your company to encourage connection?

Here are a few ideas from Mental Health Action Day.

Create open communication channels. Create channels for employees to share interests, hobbies and personal milestones.

Organize team-building activities. Organize a group volunteer outing, a team lunch or a virtual game hour. Host these activities during company time or make them optional if after hours.

Establish peer recognition programs. Establish an internal awards program in which employees can nominate their colleagues. 90% of workers link peer-to-peer recognition with higher job satisfaction.

Create a social spot. Hold a ribbon-cutting event to debut a new designated space where employees can gather for casual conversations, brainstorming sessions or collaborative work.
