Workplace Mental Health
There remains a lot of stigma around mental health. As a result, many suffer in silence – like a former colleague of mine who was lost to suicide. But it doesn’t have to be that way. A little ‘regular maintenance’ in the form of education, inspiration, practical tools and open communication can go an awfully long way.
And that’s exactly what I provide through my programs
My programs are for organizations that believe mental health is every bit as important as physical health – and want to inspire the same among their employees. The same way a regular maintenance program that includes daily brushing and flossing contributes to great dental health, maintaining active participation in our mental health leads to better human health. Creating a customized mental health maintenance program for your organization, based on the needs and objectives of your team, leads to higher employee wellbeing, increased engagement both professionally and personally while also considering a return on your investment.
I am a Certified Psychological Health & Safety Advisor and will work with you to identify the current levels of psychological health & safety in your organization and increase those levels using the Science of Hope - evidence-based, practical tips and techniques to increase levels of mental safety within your organization by increasing feelings of safety in individuals. My free and low-cost assessment tools are non-evasive, completely confidential and complement any surveys or assessment tools you may already be using.
Your customized program to support workplace mental health and increased levels of psychological health & safety could include my 7-part Making Mental Health Personal online workshop series, half-day workshops for front-line employees, senior leaders and executives as well as 1:1 coaching to provide positive, actionable, tangible ideas your teams can take away to maintain – or improve – their mental health.
Quarterly, you could add "lunch-and-learn" style talks. As you might have guessed, I talk a fair bit about Hope – and these talks sometimes include elements of my Dream Catalyst and Self-Awareness Superhero programs. We'll also talk about Compassion, as I feel it truly has the power to change the world.
There are many ways we can build upon these quarterly visits to provide more value, including Dream Catalyst and Self-Awareness Superhero sessions for groups or individuals, open office hours for one-on-one coaching and support, additional workshops and sessions, and access to a wealth of content and resources via a private online portal.
