What we're about
An 8-week program for professionals experiencing mental health challenges in the workplace. Participants build a community of peer support founded on trust, partnership, and personal development.
Is it possible to experience a mental health challenge and be effective and succeed at work?
YES, IT IS! - Professionals Working Well is an eight-week program that provides professionals with the tools, accountability, and mindset to achieve this. This program supports each of us to balance the circumstances that cause stress and anxiety while remaining mentally stable and effective. We will share valuable information, tools, techniques and strategies all in service of unleashing our mental wellness in our professional and personal lives.
This program is for:
• Anyone who is experiencing a mental health challenge and is currently working a minimum of 35 hours.

• Self-awareness and your capacity to influence and impact others.
• Support structures for ongoing mental stability for high performance and consistent results.
• Addressing professional and personal stress and anxiety at the source by aligning your life with your core values and setting boundaries.
Professionals Working Well is designed to support each participant to manage the circumstances that cause stress and anxiety while working well in our professional and personal lives. The effectiveness of the program comes from the community sharing best practices, and learning new information, tools, techniques, and strategies. Each participant identifies an outcome to accomplish by the end of the program.

We have a great line-up of topics, speakers, tools, and strategies for high performance in the workplace including a Food and Mental Health Specialist and Personal Chef, as well as a Mental Health in the Workplace Specialist.
We use a couple of questions to screen people for this group - we are looking to create a safe and private group where people can speak openly about their mental health and not be concerned about their employer or anyone else finding out. Please respect this as workplace mental health stigma is the number #1 reason people don't get the support they need.
