September is National Suicide Prevention Month. To learn more, we spoke with Maggie Mortali, Senior Program Director at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), about the importance of mental health and suicide prevention programming in the workplace. Maggie shares why businesses play a critical role in mental health and how they can set the tone for the well-being of our workforce.

We discuss:

  • How mental health and suicide prevention education creates a stronger workforce
  • Risk factors or warning signs that could indicate an employee needs help
  • Guidance on how to incorporate suicide prevention programming into your Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
  • Mental health resources available to all organizations

Check out AFSP’s events and initiatives supporting National Suicide Prevention Day, Week, and Month.
