Supporting Mental Health of Employees During and Beyond COVID-19

The threat of COVID-19 to the health of employees extends well beyond the risk of infection. The pandemic has changed everyday life and brought with it stress and, at times, trauma that will continue to impact employees’ mental health for the foreseeable future. As a business leader or manager, you have the opportunity to ensure that your organization successfully addresses the mental health impact of the COVID-19 crisis on your employees. Doing so is good for everyone in your organization, and good for business both during and beyond this pandemic.

This toolkit is designed to help business leaders and managers anticipate and take actions that effectively support employees’ mental health during COVID-19 and beyond.

AXA Asia and Columbia University World Health Organization Centre for Global Mental Health partnered in the development of this toolkit. Additional expert consultation was provided by Stephen Bevan, Head of HR research development at the Institute for Employment Studies UK and David Ballard, organizational consultant and former head of the American Psychological Association’s Office of Applied Psychology, Center for Organizational Excellence, and Psychologically Healthy Workplace Program.

The information and recommendations provided in this toolkit are informed by scientific evidence and best practices. We hope that this toolkit will facilitate your making mental health an integral part of your COVID-19 recovery plan so that your entire organization can thrive now and into the future.
