According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, one in five adults will experience mental illness this year. In order to combat the stigma associated with mental health, the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh will be hosting mental health trainings for employees and supervisors.
The supervisor training,“Leading Resilient Teams: How To Support Your Employees’ Mental Health and Safety”, will take place on Monday, Oct. 14 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. in the Reeve Union Theatre. The training is designed for supervisors to help provide strategies for tackling common employee challenges regarding mental health and increasing engagement within departments.
Training designed for all campus employees also will be held on Monday, Oct. 14, and will take place from 1 to 2 p.m. in the Reeve Union Ballroom. Titled “There’s No Health Without Mental Health,” the training focuses on providing employees ways to manage stress and support the mental health of fellow team members.
Both sessions will be led by award-winning international keynote speaker and founder of A World Without Suicide, Mettie Spiess. Spiess is known as a “stigma-crusher” and “student champion” by educational institutions around the globe. To date, she has trained over 65,000 students, educators and leaders.
No registration is necessary for the trainings. For more information, contact the Office of Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (920) 424-1166.
