About the Program:
According to the US DOL Office of Disability Employment Policy, nearly 1 in 5 employees — 20% — may suffer mental health illness each year. Yet, millions of Americans are delaying or avoiding to seek treatment due to the stigma around mental health. This poses major problems for retention, productivity, and legal risk when the battle for talent is at historic levels. As one of the guiding principles of OK Ethics’ is inspiring trust, organizations have the ethical responsibility to lead with integrity and be at the leading edge in breaking the barriers of the mental health stigma.
