Workplace Webinars Provide Guidance For Addressing Mental Health In The Workplace

The MHAM Workplace Education department hosted a series of webinars in spring 2009 as part of our ongoing effort to provide mental health guidance for employers and employees in the workplace. These are no-cost educational workshops available to everyone online through our website.

We give a big thanks to the professionals and supporting individuals that participated in the process and the Minnesota Department of Human Services who made these presentations possible.
