It is an honor to partner with The HR Collaborative to provide a solution for their clients to address mental health in the workplace. This partnership brings mental health training solutions to leaders in the workplace that help shift the culture and normalize the conversation about mental health. Now more than ever, is critical that we normalize the conversation about mental health. Especially in the workplace. The most powerful organizations make it possible for employees to remove the mask of fear and shame and speak openly about mental health.
