Mental Health in the Workplace Town Hall & Panel Discussion

May 1, 2019 at 9:00 am - 11:00 am

To kick-off National Mental Health Month, the Indianapolis Urban League will host a Mental Health in the Workplace Town Hall Meeting and Panel Discussion on Wed., May 1st from 9:00am-11:00am at their downtown office (777 Indiana Avenue). IUL recognizes that although mental health and mental illness are used in multiple contexts and are often intertwined, both have their own distinct definitions and can be complex. IUL has also learned that some employers are unaware or unfamiliar with the definition of mental health and mental illness, which can often make it difficult to retain employees, and provide the support and assistance employees need to address the stress of everyday life.

The purpose of the Mental Health in the Workplace Town Hall Meeting and Panel Discussion is to engage mental health professionals, social services agencies, court system, employers, and community members in conversations on the definitions of both mental health and mental illness, what these definitions mean to the job seeker, those currently employed, employers etc. The panelists will also answer questions that those with mental illness or mental health concerns struggle with daily in the workplace, or while seeking employment.
Therefore, if you are a Mental Health Professional, employer, Career Coach, Re-Entry Advocate, Employment Coach, Income and Support Coach, Case Manager, Pastor, Career Services Manager/Director, Re-Entry Professional, Social Service Coordinator, Probation/Parole Officer, Community Supervision Manager, or struggle with a mental illness or mental health issues, please attend this event. Please feel free to share this event and flyer with those you believe might be interested in attending or participating in this discussion.
Call (317) 693-7603 to reserve your seat, or if you have any questions or concerns.
