World Mental Health Awareness Day Virtual Panel
October 10, 2023
11:20 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. PDT

Please note: The event will begin at 11:20 a.m. PST, giving you time beforehand to pause and center yourself before enjoying our 40-minute presentation.

Investing in your employee’s wellbeing is investing in a better and brighter future. This year the World Federation for Mental Health is focused on highlighting: “Mental health is a universal human right.” Leaders and managers are well-positioned to normalize mental health care amongst today’s workforces and drive positive cultural changes.

An APA article reported that, Research by the American Psychological Association found that 2 in 5 employees report that work negatively affects their mental health.” Supporting mental wellbeing in the workplace is an ongoing process that requires commitment and engagement from both employers and employees. Join this virtual panel to hear from industry experts and clinicians while they explore the following themes:

  • Resources employers can implement to reduce burnout.
  • Techniques individuals can implement to cope with the stressors of life.
  • Ways to support mental health with different types of therapeutic approaches.
  • How to help people understand their care options.

NEW! Because this year’s theme is “Mental health is a universal human right,” a donation for every registered participant — $40 for 40 mins – will be made to the Seattle office of the National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI), which provides advocacy, education, and support for people impacted by mental health conditions.

From the NAMI website: NAMI Seattle is the only organization in the Seattle area working specifically to fill the gaps in our local mental health system through peer-led education, referrals, and support. Originally established as “Washington Advocates for the Mentally Ill” in 1978, we worked with other concerned groups across the country to launch a national advocacy and support organization: The National Alliance on Mental Illness, or NAMI. Today, NAMI is the largest grassroots mental health organization in the nation.

Our peer-led presentations, classes and support groups bridge the gap when medical models fail to meet our needs. We have over 40 years of experience elevating stories of lived experience and shining a spotlight on the unique needs of people and families navigating their own mental health journey.
