The Educator

bridging the gap from uncertainty to understanding

WHAt

The Educator is our foundational package, tailored to meet your unique training needs.

Mental health at work has become a flashpoint over the past year.  Between remote working, integrating work and home life, the uncertainty of our world and still meeting the needs of clients, it can feel truly paralyzing.  You know your team needs support and that mental health is a vital part of the conversation, but you don’t know where to start.  Urban Wellness is here to be your guide. 

The workplace is an optimal setting to create a culture of mental health.  While 1:5 people will have a mental health challenge at any given time, 5:5 people have mental health. It’s time to bring mental health into the conversation at work.  Some of the top strategies recommended by the CDC include hosting seminars and workshops and providing managers with training to help them recognize the signs and symptoms of stress and depression in team members.

Compassionate Leadership is Essential for
Wellbeing at Work

 

 

We’re currently enrolling participants in our 10-week Winter cohorts for Emerging Leaders.

Mental health and wellbeing in the workplace is a concern that requires urgent attention. In organizations everywhere, isolation and disconnection have exacerbated already present challenges. Emerging leaders need a place to pause, recognize how their lives and work have been impacted, and identify what is required to (re)build their capacity for thriving.

This interactive training series creates a much needed space for curious inquiry, grounded understanding and inspired action. The course takes place over five (2) hour sessions and combines education, collaboration and practical strategies to use with your teams right away. Courses run in cohorts of 12 to 24 participants to ensure individual attention and connection with your facilitator, as well as opportunities for participants to build relationships with each other and create support systems that go beyond the course.

Training series includes a workbook with resources and exercises to facilitate learning and to support growth and change beyond the class sessions, as well as access to your facilitator between sessions for questions or collaboration.

Understand common mental health diagnoses, explore stigma and identify impacts across diverse groups
