    Mental Health 101: How to respond to a mental health crisis in the workplace


    William "Beau" Clark, MD, Coroner

    The COVID pandemic workplace response has mainly focused on physical health but how have the significant changes in the workplace effected workers’ mental well-being? If a co-worker has a mental health crisis at the workplace, how would you respond? What resources do you have to help them? This presentation will describe some scenarios of unhealthy coping mechanisms that could present in the workplace.  It will explain the legal process to assist someone who is struggling with a mental health crisis.  It will also delineate some choices/resources for the Human Resources Department to offer when responding to a workplace mental health crisis.
