Maine Medical Center's Lifeline Workplace Wellness Program is developing a pilot
Maine Medical Center's Lifeline Workplace Wellness Program is developing a pilot program to address mental health in the workplace. In Maine, as in the rest of the country, panic, anxiety, and depression, as well as other conditions, affect approximately one in four people. The program will provide employers with information about the resources available to help employees with mental health issues and hopes to launch a campaign to combat the stigma that often surrounds mental illness. Small businesses, in particular, often lack the resources to deal with these issues. Looks at the example of Coffee by Design, a 45-person company whose founder, Mary Allen Lindemann, struggled to put together an Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
