Clarion University Small Business Development Center will present “Mental Health in the Workplace” from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Aug. 29 at the SBDC offices in the Gregory Barnes Center at 330 North Point Drive, Suite 100, Clarion.
Angela Shirey, LCSW, will be the speaker. Many employers are starting to play attention to the mental health of their employees. At least one in five adults suffers from a diagnosable mental health issue, and employers lose over $44 billion a year in lost productivity to depression alone.
This workshop will guide participants in addressing mental health issues in the workplace, as well as in creating a culture that supports the emotional health and well being of employees. A healthy and productive workforce is directly related to a healthy and vital business.
