Ohio harvest

Today’s workforce is under unique pressure, and that pressure can lead to anxiety, feelings of instability, withdrawal, and the possible need for counseling and care.

Difficulty accessing the life-saving mental health care needed or not being aware of the mental health care options available can have detrimental consequences.

Even employees with access to care suffer from stigma and a lack of options. A new toolkit, developed by the Ohio Department of Insurance, is designed to help employers and employees promote mental health in the workplace and provide helpful information on navigating mental health and substance use disorder insurance benefits.

The toolkit contains information such as:

  • Understanding Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders.
  • Promoting Mental Health in the Workplace.
  • Supporting Employee Mental Health.
  • Offering Mental Health Benefits and Services to Employees.
  • Mental Health Benefits and Tips for Employees.
  • Resources for Employers and Employees.

The Ohio Department of Insurance encourages employers to educate employees to ensure they have necessary health plan information, offer informational sessions and share external resources based around mental health benefits offered to them.

Learn more about the toolkit and get more information by contacting ODI at 800-686-1526 or insurance.ohio.gov.

Through its policies it brings together people in the agricultural community and invests in building vibrant communities that support agriculture.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington, D.C.

We go to a lot of Farm Bureau events, and there’s a lot of camaraderie built because you’re meeting with people who have similar interests and goals.
