By Amber Howe, Chief People Officer, Amwell

Stress and anxiety among workers is at an all-time high. At Amwell, we are committed to providing the tools, resources and benefits our employees need to support their total well-being, as well as cultivating a supportive environment that promotes and normalizes mental health.  

I am incredibly proud to have our approach to fostering a mentally healthy workplace recognized and awarded a gold Bell Seal for Workplace Mental Health by Mental Health America. 

Investing in the mental health of our employees is not just good for business, it’s the right thing to do. As a company enabling better access to mental healthcare for all, I am proud to say that we are equally committed to fostering a culture of well-being within our organization. We do this by offering a competitive package of benefits and programming to support our employees’ mental health including:

  • Free access to virtual and automated behavioral health programs through Amwell Therapy, Amwell Psychiatry and SilverCloud, as well as an employee assistance program
  • Designated mental health and volunteer days 
  • Flexible scheduling
  • Robust mental health programming, training and resources 
  • Unlimited paid time off to support a positive work-life balance

“We are pleased to recognize Amwell with [their] Bell Seal award. Whether it’s elevating diverse voices through a DEI blog and podcast, supporting a feedback-friendly environment, or providing meaningful wellness and professional development opportunities, Amwell has demonstrated their commitment to well-being in the workplace by receiving this certification.”
