What Our Participants Say

9 out of 10 of Mind Share Partners training participants have a better understanding of workplace mental health and stigma after our training.

"It challenges you."

Sabrina George, Executive Assistant & Office Manager

"I loved that this experience was more than just a lecture - that it challenged you to think, listen, even take notes, to really maximize the experience and make sure you're taking away helpful, actionable lessons. I also loved the handouts provided. I'll definitely be using them!"

"This is a MUST for managers."

- Ashley Talbert, Mental Health Employee Resource Group Chair

“This is a MUST for managers. At our organization, this is where we are finding it difficult to better support our community. Our managers are not trained to handle or identify these situations. People are often directed to HR or benefits.”
