For Individual Managers and Employees That Fills A Gap In Current Training

SAN FRANCISCO, CA—U.S. workplace mental health non-profit, Mind Share Partners, launched a virtual mental health certification program for individual managers and employees called Mind Share Partners Institute. The program differentiates from existing workplace mental health training by offering a fully virtual experience and a focus on equipping internal champions to create and drive a mental health strategy at their company to support employee mental health and wellbeing.

There is a gap in existing workplace mental health training programs that are often reactive and treatment-focused. This ignores the underlying workplace factors such as long work hours and insufficient processes that affect mental health. Proactive practices can promote a company-wide culture that supports the entire spectrum of mental health experiences from stress, to burnout, to diagnosable conditions.

With half of millennials and 75% of Gen Z-ers leaving a job in part because of mental-health reasons, there is a need for true culture change at companies. Culture change of any kind requires top-down and bottom-up support, which is why the Institute is open to individuals at all levels of an organization from the C-Suite to front line employees. Mind Share Partners Institute participants will learn the skills to support mental health and develop a mental health strategy with a proactive lens through culture change.

The first program cohort starts in June 2020 and will run through September 2020. It includes four 2-hour virtual training sessions using case studies, scenarios, personal reflection, and action planning tools.
