An employer that commits to mental health can have a significant impact on the organization's overall health. Mental Health America (MHA)'s Bell Seal for Workplace Mental Health is a national certification program to recognize employers committed to creating mentally healthy workplaces. Led by our rich history in research and advocacy, the Bell Seal's holistic evaluation of employer practices considers the entire employee experience.
In collaboration with the DOL, CDC, and national companies, MHA is committed to furthering worker safety, health, and well-being alongside leading health and advocacy organizations. In addition to our organizational expertise and research-informed practices, we work with national leaders in workplace mental health to continuously refine the Bell Seal program— we don’t just evaluate workplace mental health standards, we set the standards.
Recognition that Resonates
Guided by our B4Stage4 philosophy, we want to elevate and celebrate organizations that take a proactive approach to mental health in the workplace. The act of curating a working environment that supports mental health and promotes positive experiences is not just good for employees and fulfilling on a human level, it’s good business.

Distinct Standard of Excellence
Bell Seal recognition builds a sense of pride in employers and optimism in existing and prospective employees alike. We seek to understand how organizations approach mental health via four categories — workplace culture, benefits, compliance, and wellness programs — to gain a clear understanding of the entire employee experience and award recognition accordingly.
