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.

Ulliance Shines a Light on Anxiety with this Must-See Documentary, “ANGST: RAISING AWARENESS AROUND ANXIETY”

Posted by Ulliance on Mar 27, 2019 2:04:26 PM

 

Ulliance is proud to sponsor this documentary film created to start community conversations about anxiety, provide tools, resources & hope screens on

Wednesday, April 17 from 6:00pm - 8:00pm
at Madonna University (FREE TICKETS)

 

“When we learned about the opportunity to provide the screening of the documentary film Angst to the community and to be part of a movement to bring awareness to, and help eradicate, the stigma around anxiety, I couldn’t pass up the chance for Ulliance to support this great cause,” said Kent Sharkey, President and CEO of Ulliance.  “This is what we do every day for our clients’ employees and/or students—provide emotional well-being through our employee (EAP) and student assistance programs (SAP). What a great opportunity to partner with a long-time client that utilizes both our EAP and SAP services, Madonna University, to host the screening on their campus,” Sharkey added.

 “This powerful film shows how students really feel about anxiety.  It is a large part of daily life for persons of all ages, yet not everyone feels they can talk about it.  We are honored to host this documentary on our campus to open the conversation with students, staff, faculty, and our community about resources that can provide hope” said Christine Benson, Ph.D., Madonna University assistant vice president and dean of students.

 

There is a special cameo appearance in the film by Michael Phelps
where he talks openly about his struggles with anxiety.
