✓ Educate employees on mental health self-care, critical warning signs, and safe crisis intervention
✓ Do not discriminate against or stereotype individuals who live with mental health conditions
✓ Train leaders to recognize and eliminate unconscious bias
✓ Ensure every employee is aware of stigma-free inclusive language
