Workplace Presentations

With 1 in 5 Americans living with a mental health condition, almost every workplace is impacted by the challenges that come with addressing this common health issue. NAMI Austin offers workplace presentations that break down mental health myths, encourage positive and proactive mental health conversations and provide employees with mental health tip, tools and resources.

Managing Stress: Six Strategies that Can Change Your Life

The American Institute of Stress estimates that one million U.S. employees miss work each day due to workplace stress. While it may be impossible to avoid stress, this presentation provides a tool for pinpointing particular and common habits that exacerbate stress and developing simple strategies to minimize their impact.

This one-hour presentation gives your employees tips and tools for managing stress and helps them develop an understanding of how to distinguish stress from more serious mental health issues.

Mental Health Myths

“Recovery from a mental illness is impossible.” “People who have a mental illness tend to be second-rate workers.” “People who have a mental illness are unpredictable, potentially violent and dangerous.” The myths surrounding mental health are abundant and pervasive and often deter people from getting help when they need it.

This one-hour presentation, which combines information with storytelling, breaks down some of the most common mental health myths and encourages participants to join the movement that’s changing the way our community talks about mental health.
