Promoting a positive workplace culture can increase individual’s chances of seeking help and support when it comes to their mental and emotional health.
Mind Blank workplace programs create a fun, safe and engaging environment to raise awareness around how mental health can manifest in the workplace. We use professional actors and program facilitators to educate workers on effective management of mental health issues in the workplace. Our team have created video materials based on stories of lived experience to provoke discussion points on psychological hazards and their impact on workers’ mental health. We also help to build skills to know how to respond in a time of need.
