Mental Health Talks, Lunch & Learn, Workshops

Everyone has mental health. A healthy workplace improves productivity, reduces mental health related disability claims and makes for happier employees.

The biggest problem with current industry workplace mental health workshops is they get delivered through the lens of the service provider or mental health care organization. What makes our framework more meaningful is that it comes from the personal, family, and relational perspective; complemented by our professional experience.

Our model provides real-life examples of what mental health, illness, addiction, recovery, and well-being means and how it applies to people’s lives. Whether or not you have a mental health problem, it’s essential to cultivate well-being and resilience to flourish through the ebbs and flows of life.
