When it comes to health, taking care of our minds is just as important as taking care of our bodies. Approximately 1 in 5 New Yorkers experience a mental health disorder each year – and if you’re one of them, WorkWell NYC wants you to know that you’re not alone.

Our Be Well program partners with Thrive NYC to support employees’ emotional, mental, and social well-being, promote access to mental health benefits, and create inclusive, stigma-free work environments.
