Suicide Prevention & the Workplace: How to Promote Workforce Wellness & Culture Change
April 19, 2022
The workplace is a crucial setting in the nation’s collective suicide prevention strategy. Employers who promote mental health and wellness and prepare for swift and supportive intervention strategies, including when crises occur, will not only reduce the risk of suicide in the workplace, but can increase employee satisfaction, productivity, and ROI.
What is the ideal role of employers, managers and coworkers in suicide prevention? How can workplace culture best promote wellness, help seeking, and protect those at risk?
In this 60-minute event Colleen Carr, Director of the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention at EDC, will speak with Michelle Tenzyk and Cal Beyer, two national experts on suicide prevention in the workplace to: Outline key crisis prevention, intervention, and postvention strategies, provide a “state of the union” of the current work accomplished and underway, discuss the individual challenges of seeking help, highlight how workplace culture can be changed to better promote wellness and protect those at risk, and orient attendees to the many resources available to support their change efforts.

In this 60-minute panel discussion, we will share lessons learned from peer bridging in suicide care, supporting families and young people, and how technology-supported care may help peer bridgers, persons in suicide crises, and their supporters.
