Discrimination against employees because of their health — including mental health — is illegal. While HR can make sure the right supports are in place, managers should also make sure that stigma isn’t impacting their day-to-day decisions about their teams. For example, how can a manager prevent their personal views on mental health from biasing their task assignment or performance reviews of an employee who’s disclosed a mental health challenge? To reduce the impact of stigma after a mental health disclosure, managers should acknowledge their biases, lead with curiosity, solve collaboratively, and promote a supportive work culture.
