LSHRM WELLNESS COMMITTEE:
We would like to THANK YOU for attending LSHRM’s Unboxed: Releasing the Rage Event. We hope you had fun, found it educational, and look forward to seeing you at our future events! https://www.lshrm.org/calendar-of-events

You can find the Mental Health Toolkit on our LSHRM Wellness website page. This awesome guide provides tips and tools for simple actions you can take to encourage your leaders, managers and employees to raise awareness and reduce stigma about mental health issues.

Announcing the Well-being at Work: Mental Health Toolkit!

The mental health toolkit helps fill that gap, and includes engaging and simple-to-implement resources:
