Research suggests that employees are working longer hours than ever, experiencing higher levels of burnout, and confronting serious challenges at home and work. To understand how this crisis is reshaping the workplace, Mental Health America (MHA) is joining with PBS to host a live panel based on a recently released PBS documentary series, Future of Work. The conversation will delve into the challenges and responsibilities employers face in taking care of their employees' mental health.

As part of Mental Illness Awareness Week, Taylor Adams, MHA's Director of Workplace Mental Health, will moderate a panel of four industry experts to explore the changes and identify solutions.
