Mental wellbeing programs and guidelines: Where is the evidence?

Employers are trying to make sense of the current barrage of published mental health guidelines and programs on the market, but often the evidence is lacking. Krystal Sexton, Americas Regional Lead, Human Performance and Care at Shell Oil, and David Ballard, Senior Fellow & Scientific Advisor for Workforce Mental Health at the Health Enhancement Research Organisation (HERO), will help lead us through this maze and discuss the existing evidence. Shell’s strategy of how to utilize global data to inform mental wellbeing programming will be presented.

This webinar is the third of the 2022-23 webinar series on corporate best practices in mental wellbeing hosted by the Global Centre for Healthy Workplaces and Optum.
