Corporate Education Program

Mental health research has forecast that by 2020 the prevalence of mental health issues – such as emotional disorders and substance dependence – will surpass all physical diseases as the leading cause of disability in the U.S.  In an average week in the U.S., five million people miss work due to stress and an estimated four million work days are lost due to depression.

Imagine the profound impact your company can realize by coaching your employees about mental health issues and how to create an environment of advocacy and understanding.

Minding Your Mind offers a 90-minute workshop designed to educate adults on basic mental health issues and how they impact daily life in the workplace, at home, and during interactions with others. Supporting the instructional piece are hands-on learning exercises to provide guidance on communication techniques to employ when discussing mental health issues, as well as positive coping skills that can be used to alleviate stress in any situation.

Appropriate for small businesses to large corporations, this program is facilitated by one of Minding Your Mind’s professional clinicians and includes a presentation by one of our young adult speakers to attach real-life experiences to the topics being discussed.

At the completion of this program, individuals are able to identify the following:

  • the most common causes and effects of stress and anxiety
  • negative and positive coping skills
  • the symptoms of depression
  • what is considered a crisis
  • the warning signs most often associated with self-harm and suicide
  • how to help someone who is experiencing a mental health issue or crisis
