Mental Health – Resilience and Building a Culture of Well-Being and Compassion

May 20 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Mental Health – Resilience and Building a Culture of Well-Being and Compassion
As of 2021, mental health and substance use conditions will surpass all physical diseases as the major causes of disability worldwide. Many of your employees and their families are impacted by mental health & wellness and this may adversely affect productivity, increase absenteeism, and disrupt teamwork. An estimated 26% of Americans ages 18 and older—about 1 in 4 adults—experience a diagnosable mental health condition each year.  When employers recognize this and create a culture that supports workers’ mental health, workers are more likely to speak openly, to know where to go for help or advice, and are more than twice as likely to love their jobs.
Join Disability:IN Wisconsin in partnership with Disability:IN Greater Kansas City and Disability:IN Chicagoland, for a conversation on the prevalence of employee’s mental health & wellness, breaking the silence, and having tough conversations within your workplace.
Time – 9:00 am – 10:00 am
Cost – Nos charge for members, $45 non-members
Speaker: Dr, Bethany Lopresti
Dr. Lopresti joined Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) in the fall of 2018 as the Executive Director of Behavioral Health and have since joined the faculty in the Department of Psychiatry.  She works in close partnership with her colleagues at MCW in forwarding the goals of Behavioral Health that are so central to the mission of Froedtert Health.  A primary tenet of our work in Behavioral Health involves caring for our own employees and working to prevent common barriers, such as stigma surrounding mental health, from interfering with a safe and inclusive workplace.  
Trained as a clinical psychologist, Dr. Lopresti has previously served as a clinician, educator, and leader at NorthShore University Health System and The University of Chicago.  She completed her doctoral residency and postdoctoral fellowship at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.  Dr, Lopresti’s clinical specialty is the treatment of anxiety disorders.  Breaking through the stigma associated with mental health disorders and treatment has been a longstanding passion of hers.
