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.

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.

Remote work offers many benefits to both employees and organizations. From increased worker productivity and lower overhead expenses to decreased employee stress and a smaller carbon footprint, the practice of remote working is growing in popularity.
