Workplaces can play an important role in promoting the mental health of employees. Yet they can also be a source of stress that contributes to mental health problems.
In this course, we explore organizational culture and structure and how these elements impact first responders dealing with challenges related to mental illness. You will be given the opportunity to evaluate an organization’s wellness program and create a business case for wellness programs in the workplace.
