Employers understand the impact of mental disorders on their employees, family members of
employees and their workplaces. And many want to do something about it. But even those employers who are highly motived to address this issue are at a loss for what to do.
Through an eighteen-month development grant awarded by the Wisconsin Partnership Program at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Mental Health America of Wisconsin and its partners have created a strategic plan that incorporates the recommendations of employers for building the mentally-healthy workplace. Ava Martinez and Alice Pauser, both WI Certified Peer Specialists, are part of the Advisory Board. Click here to view the strategic plan.
