Recent research found that LGBTQ+ workers were more likely to experience mental health challenges such as anxiety, depression, and burnout — and to say that their work or work environment had a negative impact on their mental health. As a leader, how can you support the mental health of your LGBTQ+ employees? Start by providing mental health resources, education, and skill-building. Ensure your list of covered providers includes those who are LGBTQ+ or who have experience with LGBTQ+ health, and that your insurance plans cover services for same-sex couple and family arrangements. Second, share information about the unique health experiences of LGBTQ+ folks with all employees. Identify a clear, designated point of contact on your HR team who is a part of or allied with the LGBTQ+ community who can sit down with employees, outline the resources available, and answer any questions. Finally, explore mental health training across all organizational levels to equip employees to support one another.
