Connecting remote teams and supporting mental health during times of isolation

Learn how bots on Workplace from Facebook can help support mental well-being for your staff and workforce.

Since 1949, the month of May has been observed as Mental Health Month in the United States. Many organizations like National Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health America place a spotlight on this month to raise awareness about the importance of mental health, and to stop the stigma associated with the conversation.

When employees are struggling alone behind the scenes, their ability to work suffers as well. According to the CDC, depression can interfere with a person’s ability to complete physical job tasks “about 20% of the time and reduces cognitive performance about 35% of the time.”

In this on-demand webinar, we will show you how tools like Workplace and The Bot Platform can allow you to create a system of tools and resources supports well-being and creates a sense of community among your staff.

What you can expect to learn:

1. Mental health and work – There are a magnitude of professional and personal factors that can impact staff performance. According to the CDC, “about 80% of adults with depression reported at least some difficulty with work, home, or social activities because of their depression symptoms.” Work-life balance and feeling supported at work is critical for your employees.

2. The additional impact of COVID-19 – On top of already existing levels of stress, COVID-19 has added a huge amount of strain to an already burdened population. According to a recent study, last month roughly 70% of Americans experienced moderate-to-severe mental distress—triple the rate seen in 2018.

3. The opportunity for employers – When employers face mental health issues head-on, the feedback loop is endless. Employees feel supported, are more engaged, happier and productive. And this, in turn, can positively impact their colleagues, family and friends.

4. Mental health and community building use cases – Using The Bot Platform employers can easily build tools that can measure employee morale, identify changes in staff wellbeing, conduct anonymous surveys and much more.
