As 2022 ends, and the aftermath of COVID-19 lingers, mental health is one of the biggest challenges facing employees and their employers. Unlike physical injuries, mental illness can show up as subtle, erratic behavior that is easy to miss or dismiss until it becomes unhealthy or even dangerous. These challenges are amplified at work, where employers have a duty to protect employees, but to also avoid discrimination.

• Capture the attention and buy-in of management regarding the liability and impact of mental health issues at work.
