In honor of Mental Illness Awareness Week (October 7-13th), we’d would like to remind faculty and staff of the resources that are available to help address mental health related needs. As always, we want each and every one of our employees to be able to bring their whole selves to work, and part of total well-being is mental wellness. Below are some helpful resources/reminders:
-The Center for Counseling and Wellness offer resources to faculty and staff that can be accessed on their website: http://www.augsburg.edu/cwc/facultystaff-referral-guide/self-care-for-faculty-staff/
-GuidanceResources (Augsburg’s EAP provider) has a comprehensive resource guide that was distributed back in May, in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month. Access to that resource can found here: http://web.augsburg.edu/hr/2018_Wellness/RG_MentalHealthResources.pdf
-See the EAP flyer (http://web.augsburg.edu/hr/2018_Wellness/Guidance_Resources.EAP.pdf) for more information available to faculty and staff
-HealthPartners has resources available to members on their website at: https://www.healthpartners.com/hp/healthy-living/health-topics/behavioral-health/index.html
-And lastly, a reminder that eligible staff can use their sick time to attend to both physical and mental health needs as they arise.
