Mental health well-being is key for a healthy and productive workforce, yet each year nearly 1 in 5 American adults experience a mental health disorder that impacts them at home and work.

It’s time to drop the stigma around talking about mental health in the AEC industry and focus on creating a supportive environment with access to appropriate resources.

In this webinar, our panelists have an open and candid conversation about how we, as an industry, can act now to prioritize mental health awareness.

Key takeaways include:

  • Hear firsthand experiences with mental health management in the workplace.
  • Discuss tips and risk factors of what to look for in someone experiencing mental health challenges.
  • Discuss effective actions companies can take to provide solutions and support for mental health, including workforce training, wellness programs, and other tools.
  • Identify how best to support your colleagues and incorporate it into your company culture

We also wanted to provide you with a brief compiled list of additional resources and micro-learning opportunities that our teams have found helpful for mental health wellness. We hope you find this useful as you further explore mental health wellness in the AEC industry.
