The goal of my Suicide Prevention keynote, is to give people permission to say the words depression, bipolar, and suicide out loud, without recrimination, and to create a common pool of knowledge surrounding depression and suicide, in which those who suffer, and those who love them, can swim. Program content is divided into four chapters: • Suicide Prevention in the Workplace • What to Do When Someone is Suicidal • Conversations About Suicide • Suicide Postvention Value to Attendees: Developed by the Carson J Spencer Foundation, the Working Minds: Suicide Prevention in the Workplace program toolkit features a facilitator’s guide, trainee workbooks, and supplemental materials designed to help workplace administrators and employees better understand and prevent suicide. The program helps workplaces appreciate the critical need for suicide prevention while creating a forum for dialogue and critical thinking about workplace mental health challenges. The program builds a business case for suicide prevention while promoting help-seeking and help-giving. Several interactive exercises and case studies help employers and their staff apply and customize the content to their specific work culture. Working Minds was developed to address a gap in suicide prevention programming for those of working age. The toolkit was built on best practices and the insights of mental health service providers, human resource professionals, and top suicide prevention experts from across the country. ROI: Increase profit while transforming culture and improving wellbeing. Mental illness and substance abuse costs employers an estimated $225.8 billion each year, according to a recent study, that featured a random sample of over 28,000 workers in the US. The largest indirect cost of mental illness comes in the form of decreased performance due to absenteeism, or regularly missing work, and presenteeism, or working while sick. While most employers notice absenteeism, they often overlook presenteeism. A study measuring health-related productivity estimated that individuals working with untreated illnesses cost employers $1,601 per person each year. CEOs underestimate the hidden costs of employee wellbeing. Overestimating the importance of physical health and underestimating the cost and prevalence of mental illness leads to wasteful spending and decreased life satisfaction of employees.
