Suicide Prevention as a Workplace Health and Safety Issue at VPPPA

Suicide Prevention as a Workplace Health and Safety Issue at VPPPA

Just 22 percent of employers currently have or plan to implement programs to address opioid use and suicide prevention this year.

Initiatives that employers are using to address mental health include encouraging open discussion and building a judgment-free culture, and partnering with an outside vendor to provide support.

The nation is experiencing a mental health crisis, including dealing with rising deaths from opioid abuse and suicide. Yet, not enough employers are taking steps to prevent more of these kinds of deaths within their workforce, according to Willis Towers Watson’s 2019 Emerging Trends in Health Care Survey.
