The Link Between Mental Health & Total Well-being

Posted by Kathryn Lynch-Morin on Feb 12, 2020 2:15:21 PM

The phrase “total well-being” likely has you thinking of eating healthier, exercising more and getting regular checkups.

That all may be true, but don’t dismiss the role mental health plays in overall well-being.

Many employers today are taking steps to merge employee assistance programs (EAPs)—which give employees the opportunity to meet and talk with counselors, identify approaches and solutions and receive resources for additional help—with wellness programs and initiatives. 

That holistic approach offers many benefits to employers and employees alike. 

With the mental health components of EAPs incorporated into a physical health-focused wellness program, employees can reduce risk factors associated with chronic disease and their overall health care costs.

Embedded EAPs Can Undermine the Mission of EAPs

Posted by Kathryn Lynch-Morin on Nov 13, 2019 8:43:48 AM

Look closely at the price tag and service offering differences between programs before you decide which is right for your organization. 

When an organization invests in employee assistance programs (EAPs), it is making an investment in its people and in the bottom line.

Employees with access to EAPs benefit from brief, solutions-focused counseling that is combined with an assessment and referral to other resources for long-term needs. Problems are resolved and employees who receive help are more productive and less likely to miss work or leave the job because of a crisis. Work teams learn more effective ways to communicate and organizations become more efficient and harmonious.

A Guide to Workplace Wellness Culture

Posted by Kathryn Lynch-Morin on Sep 30, 2019 2:40:02 PM

Creating a wellness program is not the same thing as creating and sustaining a culture of wellness in the workplace.

A wellness program has a beginning and an end, while a wellness culture is a way of life—one that’s followed by leaders and employees at all levels of the organization.

The good news is that you likely don’t need to reinvent the wellness wheel when it comes to establishing a culture of health and well-being.
