How can we help you start or advance discussions pertaining to mental health in the workplace?
With 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. experiencing mental illness in a given year, someone in your workplace is struggling. Knowing how to recognize and support these employees is the key to meeting performance, business, and financial expectations. We have designed trainings, workshops, keynote addresses, and presentations to help leaders understand the most common ways mental illness appears in the work setting and how to legally and effectively address it.
What format suits your company’s schedule and needs? Our training sessions can be in person or virtual, live or pre-recorded, given as one-hour presentations, two-hour workshops, or combined into a half or full-day of education. Pricing depends on several variables, so contact us to discuss.
