Healthy Minds Pilly
HealthyMindsPhilly.org is an online tool and resource designed to support and improve the mental health and well-being of all Philadelphians, regardless of zip code, insurance or income status. Intended to look and feel different than traditional government sites, HMP is a welcoming and inviting space with a full suite of wellness tools and options.
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training increases the level of baseline knowledge about mental health and substance abuse issues. The program seeks to decrease the negative perceptions often associated with these themes. Employees interact with a number of people throughout the day, regardless of workplace setting, from colleagues to managers, customers to community members. When employees understand Mental Health First Aid, it can increase their confidence to engage a colleague in crisis and offer resources.
MHFA provides a complement to existing Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) in helping employees work through life challenges that may negatively affect job performance. MHFA helps reduce employee absences related to mental health issues, and helps employees be present and productive in their jobs.
