Research found that a little over half of the employees who are not at the managerial level know what the mental health benefits offered by their work are, and whether or not their insurance covers such benefits. That’s rather tragic since in many cases, mental health support is available to employees but they just don’t know about it or aren’t clear on how to access it. Employers can take a “There’s no such thing as over-informing” approach here, sending out regular reminders to employees that mental health benefits are available, and detailing how to access these. They could also ask that managers remind their teams of these often as well.
