Mental health is all of our business
For businesses across the state, the wellbeing of employees is a top priority. But with mental health concerns growing in our communities, taking care of those employees can be a challenge. It doesn’t help that mental health issues aren’t always as easy to spot as a physical ailment.
This is why the Salt Lake Chamber collaborated with the Utah Suicide Prevent Coalition to create a toolkit for employers to proactively address mental health in the workplace. This upstream preventative resource can be implemented by business leaders, human resources, and those with the ability to influence company culture for good.
Join us in elevating the conversation on mental health and suicide prevention. Because no matter what our line of work, mental health is all of our business.

Grief from a suicide loss is unique and complicated. You may experience intense feelings of shock, despair, fear, anger, relief, guilt, or shame. These feelings are normal, even if they are directed at the person who died and do not mean you did not love them. It can often be helpful to have support from many different sources. Support groups can help you find others going through similar situations. To find a support group near you, click the button below.
