Our friends at PMP are sponsoring the upcoming Ellevate event that focuses on the need to have open communication and shame free dialogue in relation to mental health issues. PMP’s HR Directors have significant experience dealing with all kinds of workplace issues, mental health being one of the most delicate to manage. Mary Simmons, HR Director PMP, is a board member for Ellevate here on LI, is passionate about the need to expand open dialogue about these issues in the workplace. A healthy workplace (and wider community), hinges on the mental well being of its people. .
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), 1 in 4 adult Americans have some form of diagnosable mental illness in any given year; and the number among children is 1 in 5. Yet the stigma remains surrounding mental illness and as a result many people fail to seek the help they desperately need. Internationally recognized mental health consultant, educator and speaker, Hakeem Rahim, will lead the discussion; exploring the impact that this stigma has on our lives and ways to move beyond the shame and silence to healing, health and wellness.
Join us and our friends at PMP and Ellevate to get the facts, resources and share in the message that “without mental health, there is no health,” or true success in your career and beyond.
