Mental Health

 

Mental health is just as vital as physical health. Make a commitment to yourself and prioritize your mental health by following these practices:

  1. Open Communication: Whether you are experiencing stress, anxiety, or simply need someone to talk to, don’t hesitate to reach out to a trusted individual.
  2. Work-Life Balance: Striking a balance between work and personal life is crucial. Be sure to take breaks, set boundaries, and make time for activities that recharge yourself outside of work.
  3. Self-Care: Remember to prioritize self-care. This can be exercise, mindfulness, hobbies, or simply taking a moment to breathe. Small acts of self-care can have a big impact on mental well-being.
  4. Support Resources: Crown offers an Employee Assistance Program through Behavioral Health Systems (BHS). This benefit allows Crown employees and their dependents each 8 free sessions per calendar year for a whole collection of services, including mental health issues. To contact BHS, call 1-800-245-1150. Another resource is 988. 988 is a national network of local crisis centers that provides free and confidential support to people in suicidal crisis or emotional distress. To access all you need to do is dial 988.
  5. Stigma Reduction: It is important to continue to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health. By fostering an environment of understanding and empathy, a culture can be created where seeking help is seen as a strength and not a weakness.

Together, we can promote a workforce culture where mental health is valued and supported. Remember, you are not alone, and your mental health is important.

 

Take Charge. Live Well!
