“Not acknowledging that millions are dealing with mental health conditions is costing an enormous amount both in terms of dollars and cents and, more importantly, people's lives."
Mental Health at Work Mini-Conference, May 2018
"I personally would like to thank Mind Share Partners for all of your support of this ERG and community from the very beginning when we were unsure, driven, and quite a bit scared on launching something that would make us so vulnerable. You provided resources and insight that gave us direction, hope, and reminded us that what we were creating would matter to our peers. To which, you were right. I'm thankful for Mind Share Partners, what you stand for and all that you're creating in this new area of diversity, inclusion, and belonging."
"After the Mind Share Partners conference, we created our own Mental Health Fund, since our health insurance excludes it, and talked about it so our team knew we had their back and they'd be covered for emergency care for suicidal thoughts, etc.
It's a start. Stigma runs deep. It's good that [Mind Share Partners] is helping workplaces talk about it!"

Who should join the Institute?
We encourage teams to do this training together!
This program was created for those whose job role includes supporting workplace mental health initiatives, communications, and programs, such as:
Managers and leaders seeking to create an action plan for mental health to support their organization or team.
Leaders and those who work with key decision makers from HR, People, DEI, L&D, and similar disciplines who can influence tangible change by implementing an impactful mental health strategy at their organization.
Managers and leaders at non-profit organizations who want to support their organization or team (learn if you qualify for our scholarship program!).
Due to limited spots and the intended outcome of the program (to drive culture change), Mind Share Partners Institute is most beneficial for people who work for companies of more than 10 people, and not intended for independent consultants. If you do not meet this requirement, please email us on why you would be a good fit for the program at email@example.com.
"I really valued the Mind Share Partners Institute. I felt like the seminar was engaging and I learned so much from the presenters as well as my peers. We were also provided with excellent resource materials which will be great to reference in the future. I strongly recommend this institute to anyone interested in learning on how to improve your company's culture and programming around mental health."

The Program & What You'll Learn
The Institute will take place across five 2-hour virtual training sessions using case studies, scenarios, personal reflection, and action planning tools. This program will equip you with core knowledge and skills to support mental health at work, and create an actionable strategy with practical steps that leads to meaningful culture change within your team and organization.
Our online certification program leverages expertise from mental health, management, and legal fields. The program is intentionally limited to a smaller number of participants to allow for deeper engagement during the live, facilitated training sessions to ask questions and share ideas.

The program ends with a capstone project to practice implementing everything you’ve learned.

Benefits of Becoming A Certified Mental Health Champion
Mental health at work has moved from a nice-to-have to a must-have.
Attracting and retaining talent has become a top priority as younger generations are quitting their jobs, questioning the current state of work culture. Our 2021 Mental Health at Work Report found that 81% of Gen Z and 68% of Millennial respondents have left previous roles due, at least in part, to mental health reasons.
As a certified Mental Health Champion you will be equipped to drive true culture change needed to support employee mental health in your organization.
