Mental Health Awareness Month is here and we are proud to announce that Bentek has received Mental Health America’s Bell Seal recognition for a second year in a row as a platinum employer!
The Bell Seal for Workplace Mental Health national certification program recognizes employers committed to creating mentally healthy workplaces. Led by Mental Health America’s rich history in research and advocacy, the Bell Seal’s holistic evaluation of employer practices considers the entire employee experience.
“At Bentek we take a holistic view of wellness – it encompasses the physical and the mental,” Julie Fink, President of Bentek, said. “We are passionate about keeping an open dialogue surrounding mental health and work to support our team members in whatever they are facing.”
At Bentek, our goal is to make mental health a part of that dialogue year-round, but we also want to shine a light on Mental Health Awareness Month. May is the perfect time to begin the conversation surrounding mental health if you haven’t already. Below are some resources to help you break the stigma.
