We believe that best practices for workplace well-being and mental health can be built on the following pillars:
- Assessing what we know: examine and share existing knowledge from the many nonprofit organizations, healthcare providers and business leaders who are already making progress to identify the best evidence-based practices
- Promoting well-being: promoting mental well-being and “brain fitness” as equally important to physical health and fitness and reduce work-related risk-factors for mental health
- Increasing awareness and reducing prejudice: educating on mental health issues to create an informed, responsive and understanding workplace
- Assisting and intervening: assisting employees at risk, providing mental health first aid
- Connecting the dots: ensuring resources for employees and their families with mental health issues are understandable, available, coordinated and affordable
These workplace principles within the One Mind at Work Charter are supported by benefits resources that are organized and coordinated.
we stand behind
- Patient-focused coordination of employee well-being programs, employee assistance programs and healthcare benefits functions
- Equal availability of mental and physical care without bureaucratic, cost or out-of-network roadblocks
- Better quality and outcomes through evidence-based care and measured outcomes, thus improving patient lives while reducing waste
- Integration of physical and mental care both to provide better outcomes and reduce costs
- Use of technology to solve organizational and resource issues
System change takes time, and we advocate a tactical approach. We ask our CEOs and their teams to commit to driving these goals, and in the short term to convene a group to review our priority areas for initial gains that we believe will pave the way.
