ABOUT US

In any given year, 1 in 5 Americans will have a diagnosable mental health condition—that means mental health affects every meeting, every phone call, and every workplace. We believe that if workplaces commit to supporting their employees with mental health conditions, we can drastically improve individual lives, company cultures, and workplace productivity.With headquarters in San Francisco, a distributed team, and a national reach, we offer three programs:

  1. Awareness: We normalize mental health at work by engaging in public discussion at events and in thought pieces, and by coaching senior leaders to be change makers.

  2. Workshops and Advising: We help managers and colleagues to build safe spaces, facilitate hard conversations, and learn tools and strategies to navigate mental health at work.

  3. Peer Groups: We offer confidential forums for professionals to connect with other successful peers around workplace mental health topics.

We envision a world in which everyone is open about their conditions and accepted by others, enabling them to get the treatment that they need to thrive. For more information, please visit www.mindsharepartners.org.
