Our award-winning 18 segment online mental health training program “Psychological Empowerment 360™” enhances resilience, composure and adaptability for your organizational team.

“The Psychological Empowerment 360™ video course from The Mental Hygiene Project®️ is effective, well-researched, engaging and provides an excellent way to be pro-active with resilience for your team. It is not an easy task to get law enforcement officers to be engaged with a video training course because of the demanding schedules and work stressors. Yet, these training segments are done in such a professional manner with images, graphics, moving video and visual storytelling that the feedback was very positive about the course and the benefit of all the valuable information that is included. If you are a senior officer wanting to create more resilience, composure and adaptability for your team, this course is outstanding. We are looking forward to the next training modules from The Mental Hygiene University and, as a Chief of Police, I believe this training is extremely beneficial to help create and maintain positive mental health and wellness for your law enforcement team.”

“The Health and Safety Division of Miami-Dade Fire Rescue (MDFR) recently had the pleasure of hosting Ryan and Michael for our first ever mental health conference, “A Healthy Mind Saves Lives: A First Responder Mental Health Event.” We are thankful for their engagement and contribution to the event, as their insight and knowledgebase of first responder resiliency were excellent additions to the conversation. From the moment we contacted them, their dedication and commitment to the “vision” of the event was nothing short of professional, knowledgeable, and attentive. They took the time to understand our conference goals and provided us with several options tailored specific to our needs. Our event would not have been complete without their compassionate instructional delivery and engaging energy. We are thankful for their contribution to first responder resiliency and mental health conversations and look forward to collaborating with the Mental Hygiene Project on future initiatives.
Thank you, Ryan and Michael, for your outstanding work!”

Human Resources Connection

Mental health initiatives are no longer in the shadows from a human resources perspective. The largest companies in the world have now realized the need for comprehensive mental health training, programs and leadership development that focuses specifically on how to promote Mental Hygiene in the workplace.

More than 40 CEOs from large companies partnered with the American Heart Association (AHA) to promote mental health-friendly workplaces.

The AHA CEO Roundtable report, Mental Health: A Workforce Crisis, analyzed findings from several studies on employee mental health issues.

“As CEOs, we must lead by example and engage other business leaders in redefining workplace inclusiveness and powering a mental health movement,” wrote Alex Gorsky, chairman and CEO of Johnson & Johnson; Brian Moynihan, chairman and CEO of Bank of America; and the AHA’s CEO, Nancy Brown, on behalf of the roundtable. “We cannot afford to let social stigma and discrimination hinder an individual’s ability to achieve optimum health and employment,” they added.

  • Leadership. Visibly position leaders to champion a mental health-friendly workplace.
  •  Engagement. Involve employees in all aspects of mental health-related workplace decision-making.
  • Benefits. Offer a comprehensive package of employee-centered medical benefits and programs. Develop and implement a mental health plan that makes accessing these resources easy for employees.
  • Communications. Communicate clearly and often to employees about the organization’s mental health policies and benefits.
  • Community partnerships. Use community partnerships to promote the objectives of the mental health plan, such as community-based organizations that provide mental health services.

An astonishing fact is that the gap between what employees and human resources professionals believe about mental health knowledge and resources in the workplace is larger than most people understand.

The Mental Hygiene Project can help you and your organizational team improve your mental health initiatives, training and resources in every area so your human resources professionals are properly prepared and your employees are getting the support they need and deserve.

  • 35% of employees “Always” miss 3-5 days a month because of workplace stress.

…indirect costs of mental health disorders — particularly lost productivity — exceed companies’ spending on direct costs, such as health insurance contributions and pharmacy expenses.

  • About 1 in 5 Americans will experience a mental illness at some point in their life. That’s more than cancer, heart disease and diabetes combined.

  • Incredibly, this figure does not include the indirect cost of someone who is present at work but is not fully productive because they are battling their illness or thinking about a loved one who is suffering.

Reducing the stigma of mental health issues starts with education and proper training at all levels in both schools and the workplace.

Companion subjects like leadership development, conflict resolution, stress management, how to deal with difficult people and other competencies contribute to a healthy workplace, lower risk, more productive employees and vibrant communities.
