The Mental Health and Work Design Lab leverages extensive scientific expertise to ensure that research is used in meaningful ways to guide decision-making for workplace mental health programs. We are committed to applying evidence-based approaches to address the critical issues around mental health in the workplace.
Practical Toolkit for Organizational Leadership on Workplace Mental Health
Partnering with the AXA Group, Dr. Pike led the development of a publicly available toolkit that addresses mental health needs in the workplace – both in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
Maybelline Brave Together
Dr. Pike serves as the scientific advisor to Maybelline’s Brave Together Cause Campaign. Our team has provided content expertise and has completed a broad scoping review of the scientific literature on the proximal social and environmental factors that impact anxiety and mood for adolescent girls. This report served as the scientific foundation for the development of Maybelline’s Brave Together Cause Campaign.
Mental Health at Work Index
Dr. Pike is working in partnership with Ethisphere and One Mind at Work to develop and launch the Mental Health at Work Index. The Mental Health at Work Index is the first ever standardized assessment of workplace mental health that companies can use to self-assess and benchmark their programs. In the long-term, the team will build an aggregated database of best-in-class workplace mental health programs across industry sectors that will facilitate identification and promotion of data-supported best practices.
WHO Mental Health and Work Guidelines Development
Our team provided content expertise and conducted specific research on evidence-based practices for the development of the WHO Guideline on Mental Health and Work. This engagement involved systematic review of existing data and preparation of guidance on the utility of recovery-oriented strategies to enhance vocational and economic inclusion and the efficacy of return to work programs in reducing absence and improving mental health outcomes.
