Management and Training Resources
The tools to create a healthy workplace
At Blue KC, we care about what you care about: your people. Mindful by Blue KC supports your organization’s efforts to create a workplace that values behavioral health. We have workshops for managers, training for HR leaders, a wealth of well-being resources, and more.
It’s a fact. Companies that promote behavioral health are more likely to reduce absenteeism and increase productivity and profitability.
Your company can be one of them.

Behavioral health is vital to an employee's overall health
Many employees live with behavioral health issues, and yet don’t get the help they need. Not only can this take a serious toll on physical health, it can have a devastating impact on the quality of both work lives and personal lives. The good news is, employees enrolled in a Blue KC medical plan now have access to new and enhanced behavioral health services as part of Mindful by Blue KC.
We’ve created the following campaign to help you share information about the importance of behavioral health with your employees. The Suicide Prevention and Awareness Campaign includes a sample communication plan, plus direct downloads to each recommended communication, so you can easily distribute to your employees.
Health Awareness Campaign: Suicide Prevention and Awareness
Suicide is complicated and tragic. But is often preventable. Knowing the warning signs and knowing how to get help can help save lives. You can access everything you need to communicate with your employees via the Employer Guide. To learn more about this campaign and download additional materials, visit the webpage Blue KC Suicide Prevention & Awareness.
