How Leaders Can Be More Effective Regarding Mental Health in the Workplace (Part II) with Bernie Dyme

Mental Health in the Workplace with Roxanne Derhodge and Bernie Dyme

Mental Health Quote: “Your EAP should be a hub.  It should be the place that everybody goes to when they need a resource, counselling, childcare, elder care, any kind of wellness resource.” Bernie Dyme

I had such a wonderful and information-filled chat with Bernie Dyme last week that we decided to turn it into a 2-part series.  In case you missed last week, here’s the link to Part I

It’s not mandatory that you listen to it first, but I recommend that you do.  There’s so much amazing content, it would be a shame for you to miss out on any of it.

At this point in time, we’re all looking for some return to “normalcy”.  As the pandemic continues, (and it doesn’t seem like there is any end in sight) we continue to struggle through the challenges and are doing our best to keep moving forward.  On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we welcome EAP expert, Bernie Dyme to share his thoughts about the increase of EAP and mental health services being utilized and helping leaders design a safe and mentally healthy workspace for their teams.

Since co-founding Perspectives Ltd in 1981, President and CEO Bernie Dyme has helped developed an organization committed to delivering the highest-quality workplace resource programs. Bernie continues to create a balanced approach between cost savings and safe, healthy, and productive workforces.
