Mental Health Challenges in the Workplace For Florida’s Employers
Mental health is one such topic that must be addressed. You would be hard-pressed to find discussions on this issue in the various forms of public debate. Yet, there are glaring statistics that mental health is a critical problem that continues to increase every day. Employers need a strong and healthy workforce in order to be productive and profitable, and mental health is a serious impediment to those goals.
On January 27, 2020, FAIF held a roundtable event on ‘Mental Health Challenges in the Workplace for Florida’s Employers’ as part of our Lunch & Learn Series. This document captures the key points and areas of discussion. It is our hope that this document will provide a comprehensive introduction to all, and that the discussions among Florida’s employers and our government leaders continue on this important subject.
The Foundation of Associated Industries of Florida (FAIF) was formed in 2008 to address the education and development needs of Florida’s business community.
Florida businesses cannot afford to rely on public opportunities alone to train and prepare their future employees and leaders. FAIF fosters programs that identify business needs today and create solutions that will last into the future.
FAIF focuses on the specific issues that are important to the prosperity of Florida employers as well as educating the public at large about these issues. The Foundation targets specific issues that are current and are part of the ongoing discussion of how to make Florida a better place for its businesses and citizens to call home.
