Protect the brainpower of your staff!

Business operators, human resources professionals, or any person responsible for or within working groups, this is for you. Protect the brainpower and well-being of your work staff.

 

Working-age people (typically ages 35-65) are the engines running businesses and organizations, but they are also an age that is at risk for depression and suicide.

Depression is the world’s leading cause of disability, contributing to work impairment, loss of work days and productivity, and even loss of life by suicide.

AT NO COST TO YOU OR YOUR BUSINESS, YOU CAN BECOME A “WORKING MINDS” TRAINER TO LEARN HOW TO SUPPORT WORKERS’ WELL-BEING. Download the flyer.

By taking part in this day-long training, you will be a certified provider of the “Working Minds: Suicide Prevention in the Workplace” 2-hour presentation (see one in action on January 7 — find out more here), to benefit your workers or colleagues.

LEARN:

  • about the critical need for suicide prevention in the workplace
  • skills and tools to create a dialog about workplace mental health challenges
  • how to promote help seeking and help giving among professional colleagues

This opportunity to strengthen workplace health and productivity in Lorain County is being provided at no cost to participants through the generosity of: Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation (OSPF), Lorain County Board of Mental Health, Lorain County Suicide Prevention Coalition.

Please note that there are TWO Working Minds opportunities coming to Lorain County in January. If you simply want to see the 2-hour Working Minds presentation, find information about that on the LCBMH EventBrite page. However, if you want to learn how to offer the presentation yourself, to your work colleagues, attend the full-day train-the-trainer session described above, and register by contacting Vinaida Reyna at [email protected] or 440-233-2020, ext. 4225.
