We want to make the workplace kinder, more compassionate, wiser about mental health struggles, and less punitive towards people who contribute to the workplace but who sometimes struggle, through no fault or choice of their own.
Mental health problems ARE REAL + have an impact on employers and businesses directly through increased absenteeism, a negative impact on productivity and profits, as well as an increase in costs to deal with the issue.
We're a strategic resource at the intersection of mental health and career development related to diversity and inclusion shortcomings.
We have special pricing for SSA Self Study participants who go through Westat. The percentage of people receiving disability benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA) for a mental health impairment is increasing.
In 2005, SSA selected Westat to lead the Mental Health Treatment Study (MHTS), which found that supported employment services integrated with behavioral health treatment and systematic medication management helped disability beneficiaries with mental health impairments return to work, improve their health, and lower their hospital utilization.
The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance, working in partnership with Tactful Disruption, has created an online support group exclusively for female minority veterans.
Together, we are working to engage minority women veterans looking for understanding, acceptance, help and hope in addressing their deeply personal mental health journey.
