CSC Receives Gold Bell Seal for Workplace Mental Health
Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County has been awarded the 2022 Gold Bell Seal for Workplace Mental Health by Mental Health America (MHA).
The Bell Seal is a workplace mental health certification that recognizes employers who strive to create mentally healthy workplaces for their employees. MHA - founded in 1909 - is the nation’s leading community-based nonprofit dedicated to addressing the overall mental health of all.
“We know that COVID has affected mental health for many children and adults in our community, and our CSC staff and managers have felt the same impact,” said CEO Lisa Williams-Taylor. “Anxiety over the pandemic, limitations and occasional closing for local businesses, schools and governments, uncertainty about jobs and child care, loss of loved ones – these factors and more have altered so many lives and workplaces.
“Like all employers, we’ve tried hard to reduce stress and keep our employees’ concerns first and foremost,” she said.
CSC was recognized for its holistic wellness at work, supportive workplace culture, caring beyond compliance, and mental health benefits for employees.
MHA introduced the Bell Seal for Workplace Mental Health in 2019 to recognize companies and organizations that understand the value of addressing mental health at work and implement policies and practices that support employee well-being.
“This recognition by MHA demonstrates CSC’s ongoing commitment to employee mental health and well-being. We know an investment in employee mental health is an investment in our financial, social, and emotional health,” Williams-Taylor added.
