What is emotional wellness and why does a steel company include it in its wellness program? Because who we are on the outside (what others see) isn’t as important as how we feel on the inside.

I know what mental/emotional health is, but I want to hear you say it…
Emotional wellness includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being, and all of that together affects how we think, feel and act. It also determines how we handle stress, relate to others and make choices. Emotional and mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

So what?
Positive emotional and mental health allows people to realize their full potential, cope with the stresses of life, work productively and make meaningful contributions to their communities. Those are the things we want for you and your family!

How can Thrive help?
In this space, you’ll find tools and content that inspire, refresh and challenge your thinking. We also want to provide resources that can educate and help those who need it. Whether you are looking for someone to talk to about a mental health issue for you or a loved one, or you are wanting to sharpen your mind through reading and discussion, or maybe you just want to feel inspired, this is your spot. Welcome!

So, where do I start?
Here’s your Thrive Guide to emotional health and a great place to start:

Sharpen Your Mind

Research shows reading is one of the healthiest things you can do for your mental and emotional wellbeing. Reading improves empathy and creativity, as well as staves off mental difficulties like dementia and depression. That’s why Thrive has a book club. Check it out!

Someone to Talk To

The road through life is not always smooth. There are twists, turns, ups and downs. Sometimes the road disappears all together. Going through life’s journey alone isn’t easy, nor is it safe. That’s why our Employee Assistance Program, PAS, is a valuable resource providing 1-6 sessions for employees & spouses to use, which includes assessment, counseling and referral services. For help, call (800) 356-0845 or email pasadmin@paseap.com. You can also visit their website to learn more at https://www.paseap.com.
