  • You Are a Visionary: How to Create True Mental Wellness in the Workplace

    Sarah Fay, Ph.D., MA, MFA, Award-winning Author and Mental Health Advocate, Northwestern University

    TOPIC CATEGORY: Self-Improvement

    In this engaging talk, Sarah shares her own experience of mental illness and psychiatric diagnoses and the extensive research she completed for her journalistic memoir Pathological: The True Story of Six Misdiagnoses (HarperCollins). Everything we think—and Sarah thought—about mental health and psychiatric diagnoses is wrong. Believe it or not, when it comes to eradicating stigma and self-stigma, that’s a very good thing. MORE >

    We know that stress, suffering, and trauma take a toll on workers, employers, companies, and organizations. 85% of workers report the workplace negatively affects their mental health and wellbeing. Long-term stress increases the risk of mental health issues and mental illness. When a worker isn’t feeling mentally and emotionally well, their safety and the safety of others are at risk. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), depression alone costs employers $17 billion to $44 billion and causes an estimated 200 million lost workdays each year. Stigma and self-stigma against mental health conditions have been shown to increase stress and therefore exacerbate mental health conditions producing a negative and costly looping effect.

    How then do we eliminate stigma and self-stigma in the workplace?

    Topic covered:
    - Mental health in the workplace
    - Stress and how it affects mental health and psychiatric conditions
    - Mental illness and psychiatric diagnoses
    - Stigma and self-stigma
    - Being a visionary

    Topics covered:

    - Mental illness, mental health, and psychiatric diagnoses
