Besides health plans, how common is it for jobs or companies to spend time focusing on the mental health of workers?


I ask this because in day-to-day life I already see very little of people analyzing why they feel the way they do, see the way they do and think they way they do. I belive it would beneficial for people to spend more time considering the roots of why they have the thoughts and opinions that they have. If a company spent more time on the mental wellness of their workers, not them being able to get by or tough through things, I belive workers would be happy as more productive. This would also create a better connection and respect for their employers and their own jobs. #mental-health #of #check #methods #relationships #success- #unconventional #ups

Most companies offer EAP, Employee Assistance Program, through which, they will pay for counseling and sometimes legal services for their employees. I've seen EAP services cover between 3 and 20 sessions depending on the plan the employer selected. Some companies also provide wellness activities, exercise classes, and trainings on interpersonal relationships.

My job offers a service that provides you with a counselor or therapist up to 6 times a year. You can extend sessions if need be based on what you need and how much help you need. They also offer a number you can call for free to speak to someone that isn't included in the 6 times a year. I agree, if more business focused on the mental well being of their employees they would be more productive.
