What do an Instagram egg, a critically acclaimed film with Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet, and Booz Allen have in common? All were recognized at the 2019 Mental Health America (MHA) awards for their contributions to educating, advocating, and providing support on mental health issues.
MHA’s first award for workplace mental health
Booz Allen received MHA’s first-ever Mental Health Corporate Excellence award, which recognizes corporations whose programs, accommodations, and training support mental health in the workplace.
Mental health is essential to your overall health and well-being, and mental illnesses are common and treatable. People struggling with mental health may be in your family, live next door, teach your children, work in the next cubicle, sit in the same church pew, or perhaps you yourself are the one struggling with mental health.
In conjunction with Northern Trust’s Global Fund Services (GFS) group, our disability business resource council (DBRC) has launched a program of support, awareness and education around mental health at work. Although one-in-four people in the UK will experience mental ill-health, and sickness absence due to mental health issues is rising, mental health is still a highly stigmatized subject. This discrepency poses a significant problem to workplaces.

The transition from high school to college, for many, is both a daunting and exciting journey. As parents, we view this opportunity as a means to a beginning – encouraging our children to discover self-sufficiency without expecting them to be fully independent. Surprisingly, 2016 statistics show a steady increase in mental illness among college students, a derivative of this newfound independence and the pressure that comes with it. Knowing the signs and following the advice outlined by professionals in the field sets the foundation for beating mental illness among college students.
College can be a stressful time for many students. They often face greater demands, expectations and workloads than in high school. It is also the first time many have been on their own and away from familiar support networks such as friends, family and their local community. The stress of a new environment, lack of familiarity and heightened academic demands can take its toll on a student’s well-being and potentially have a significant impact on their performance and ability to succeed.
