Addressing mental health in the workplace is critical.  It’s an honor to partner with Jonathan Goyer and RFW RI to bring leadership training solutions to business leaders across RI.  Together, we will make a difference and normalize the conversation about mental health and substance misuse.

Empowering workplaces to provide support for people recovering from substance use disorder

Led by Governor Dan McKee, Rhode Island’s “Recovery Friendly Workplace Initiative” promotes individual wellness for Ocean Staters by empowering workplaces to provide support for people recovering from substance use disorder.

“Living through the COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on our mental health. Mental health challenges that existed prior to the pandemic have worsened for many of us and those without a preexisting condition have felt the effects of chronic stress. Rates of drug overdoses, general anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation have all dramatically increased.

Business owners, employers and co-workers can play a part in supporting mental health in the workplace. Tending to your staff’s mental health has proven to save money by reducing absenteeism, burnout, staff turnover and improving overall health. The training and education provided by Kim Lamontagne is a great way for businesses and organizations to address these issues”.
