MyAdvisor, a veteran-owned business that connects others to mental health services, has some tips for how employers can support a vital new mission: PREVENTS.
• All companies should participate: Businesses are a crucial piece of PREVENTS. We must make sure to include all lines of work, especially those with employees in high-stress roles.
• Prioritize mental health and suicide trainings: Mental health disorders and suicidal thoughts don’t just happen overnight, and people won’t always openly discuss it. Help your employees learn more.
• Provide mental health programs: Individuals don’t always seek help or know their options. Telehealth programs provide accessible and affordable care.
