Mental Health & Impairment in the Workplace
By Claire Stroer, MPH, CHES and Rebecca Martin, MPH, IMH-E

 

Member:$20
Non-Member: $35

 

Topic Overview:

Claire Stroer and Rebecca Martin with the National Safety Council, America’s leading nonprofit safety advocate, will present on Impairment in the Workplace, with an emphasis on mental health and wellbeing. As the COVID-19 pandemic raged, mental health issues and substance use did, too. A recent public opinion poll found that many adults are experiencing significant mental health concerns, such as difficulty sleeping (36%) or eating (32%), increases in alcohol consumption or substance use (12%) and worsening chronic conditions (12%), due to worry and stress over the coronavirus. Among workers, these issues are even more pronounced, with one in four workers showing signs of PTSD and a 63% increase in anxiety among workers in December 2021 vs pre-pandemic.  This presentation will review how substance use and mental health can be underlying causes of workplace impairment, their impact on employee safety and wellbeing, and workplace supports that are available to take action.

 

Objectives:

1. Participants will understand the broad definition of impairment

2. Participants will understand how mental health & substance use intersect with impairment

3. Participants will understand how workplaces can address impairment
