Foster a culture of inclusion by removing the stigma associated with mental health
Our Actions and Outcomes
The Alliance for Diverse Abilities (ADA) Employee Resource Group (ERG) recognized an opportunity to build more awareness and acceptance of mental health and neurodiversity. In 2017, ADA created a vision to transform the world’s mind about mental health with the creation of the Mental Health Diplomats (MHDi), a group of employees who champion better appreciation of mental health across Johnson & Johnson and in our communities.
In 2018, Under the ADA ERG, the MHDi
The MHDi provide resources, training and support to employees and their families. The group has been focusing on information related to depression—the most prevalent mental health condition—and on suicide prevention. The MHDi enable people with common conditions and caregivers to have a sense of belonging and community as well as the support and energy to make a difference. The group hosts a monthly speaker series to educate the global Johnson & Johnson community on mental health and the need to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health conditions. It has also partnered with Johnson & Johnson Global Health Services to create mental health awareness training for managers, empowering them to hold conversations about mental health with employees and encourage them to access Employee Assistance Programs.
