New Resource for Members! Working Well in Minnesota

One in five Americans suffers from mental illness each year. Of those, 60 percent diagnosed with stress, anxiety and depression do not seek treatment, according to the 2016 State of Mental Health in America report.

In the new Action Group guide, “Working Well in Minnesota,” employers will gain insights and actions for advancing mental health in the workplace. This guide is the result of The Action Group’s Mental Health Learning Network. During 2017, participants heard from a wide array of local and national mental health experts, and the focus is now on turning learning into action.

Members may access the guide by logging in through the Member Center.
