Assistant Secretary Williams Announces the Launch of Mental Health and Employment Working Group

At the U.S. Conference of Mayor’s (USCM) Executive Leadership Meeting in Miami last week, ODEP Assistant Secretary Williams delivered remarks to help launch the Mental Health and Employment Working Group, which seeks to identify policies, plans and practices to address and support workers’ mental health needs in the nation’s cities. The Working Group is a collaboration between USCM and the State Exchange on Employment & Disability’s Mental Health Initiative and reflects the shared commitment mayors across the US and the department have towards ensuring workers have access to workplace mental health support.
