Each year, millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental illness. During the month of May, Skiles Group joined the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) in its national movement to raise awareness and keep the conversation about mental health out in the open.
To help fight stigma and provide support, our Skiles Group Stigma Free Cohort has worked hard to bring a diversity of activities and resources to our employees. These efforts include “Mental Health Mindset” handouts; an in-person happy hour; a Zoom discussion group; a live webinar; various mental health-related curriculum on our continuing education platform; and increased awareness of our Employee Assistance Program.
We’ve encouraged our staff’s participation and interaction with each of these via a contest form, which tallied up participation points to enter a raffle to win prizes.
