Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

1 in 5 Americans will manage a mental health condition each year, and up to 83% will at least some point in their lifetime. While many companies are increasingly providing mental health benefits and other resources, employees will not utilize them without a broader organizational culture for support. EAP utilization, for example, averages at only 3-5%. The stigma around mental health is pervasive. 69% of employees would hide their mental health challenges from coworkers, and 8 in 10 report stigma as a barrier to seeking treatment. In Mind Share Partners’ Mental Health at Work 2019 Report in partnership with SAP and Qualtrics, less than a third of full-time U.S. employees felt comfortable talking about their mental health to their manager, HR, and senior leaders. Unsupported mental health challenges as well as the added burden of hiding these experiences due to stigma results in significant losses to productivity, retention, talent attraction, and business outcomes.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Professional Communities

We organize citywide affinity groups for workers that manage mental health conditions. Building upon Alcoholics Anonymous and employee resource groups, our peer groups provide a supportive environment of people that can provide support, empathy, and best practice sharing in terms of navigating work. This is not formal counseling or a replacement for therapy but rather a forum for workers on all points of the mental health spectrum to support each other informally. People on the more “recovered” end will serve as role models.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Our custom workshops and advising services teach companies to name, normalize, and navigate mental health at work.

Name. Only naming “stress” and “wellness” can actually further increase stigma--we use “mental health” language openly and debunk commonly-held misbeliefs.

Normalize. We use stats and stories to create a shared understanding of the prevalence and impact of mental health at work, while sparking open dialogue and providing concrete, follow-on discussion tools.

Navigate. We discuss how to be both a compassionate human and a compliant professional, including navigating the ADA. We practice tools for having productive conversations about mental health and creating a psychologically safe team culture.

Population(s) Served
Adults

We are eliminating the stigma of mental health in the workplace.

We bring awareness, education, and tools to a vital workplace and human issue. By organizing events, writing thought pieces, and partnering with companies and their leaders, we bring attention and expertise to a workplace culture that has historically neglected the importance and value of mental health.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Mind Share Partners is changing the culture of workplace mental health so that both organizations and employees can thrive. Our mission is to build awareness, support, and acceptance in the workplace for people with mental health conditions and other experiences. We envision a world in which everyone can be open about their mental health challenges and accepted by others, enabling them to get the treatment that they need to thrive. And we hope to see employee mental health as a universal priority across organizations.

Mind Share Partners is changing the culture of workplace mental health by building public awareness, offering professional communities, and providing workplace training and strategic advising to leading companies. Our multi-pronged, evidence-based approach reflects research which shows that social contact, followed by peer support and education, are the most effective ways to normalize mental health conditions and reduce stigma.

Our public awareness activities include speaking engagements, events, survey research, and thought leadership on our blog, Forbes, and Thrive Global special section as well as features in other press and media. We have published over 50+ thought leadership pieces across our editorial platforms, and our Mind Share Partners Mental Health at Work 2019 Report in partnership with SAP and Qualtrics was covered by over 100+ media outlets. We have also organized two Mental Health at Work conferences and have spoken at several external events, podcasts, and live webinars hosted by companies like Pinterest, Harvard Business Review, and Gap, Inc.

Our professional community toolkit equips individuals with the basic skills and content to organize groups of professionals to share personal experiences, discuss challenges, and share strategies in regards to mental health in the workplace context. We also manage one of the first ever virtual communities for mental health employee resource groups (ERGs) where internal champions for mental health across companies can connect and support each other to create culture change within their respective organizations.

Finally, our training and advising services for companies take the form of in-person and virtual training tailored to a variety of audiences including executives, managers, specific teams, or all-staff. Our advising services include exploratory interviews, survey assessments, communications campaigns, leader ally coaching, policy review, and more. We also provide training to individuals through webinars, virtual training, and our Mind Share Partners Institute—an online certification program that equips individuals with the knowledge and skills to create a culture of support for mental health at their organization.

The Mind Share Partners team has a breadth of professional backgrounds and lived experiences that enable us to work effectively across sectors and industries to make a difference for people managing mental health challenges. Our team members have backgrounds in management consulting, entrepreneurship, the nonprofit sector, mental health, visual design, human-centered design, and marketing and communications. We also have an advisory council with industry experts and leaders on workplace mental health as well as a team of clinical advisors and legal advisors who review and validate the training and advising content that we provide.

Mind Share Partners publicly launched in May 2017 and remains one of the only nonprofits in the U.S. focused exclusively on changing the culture of workplace mental health.

In 2019, We launched our first national study, Mind Share Partners’ Mental Health at Work in partnership with SAP and Qualtrics, that surveyed 1,500 U.S. employees about workplace mental health and stigma with significant sampling from underrepresented groups and identities. The report was covered by over 100+ media outlets including Fast Company, CNBC, and The New York Times, as well as our co-authored article in Harvard Business Review. Findings from our report continue to serve as a benchmark for new editorial press on workplace mental health.

Mind Share Partners has published over over 50+ articles on workplace mental health across our Forbes channel, Thrive Global special section, and blog. And Mind Share Partners is increasingly tapped as an expert on workplace mental health. In addition to our survey’s citation in over 100+ (and growing) media outlets, our founder and CEO Kelly Greenwood has been featured in podcasts (such as the Designing a Mentally Healthy Workplace episode on Harvard Business Review’s Anxious Achievers podcast) and has spoken at a variety of events including SHRM’s Inclusion Conference 2019, Gap, Inc.’s World Mental Health Day panel, and Pinterest and sf.citi’s How to Survive (And Thrive) in Today's Always-On Culture panel.

We have held two annual Mental Health at Work conferences in May’s Mental Health Awareness Month of 2018 and 2019. Our conference has featured executives from high-profile companies such as Coinbase, Felicis Ventures, Google, Johnson & Johnson, Morrison & Foerster LLP, Qualtrics, RetailMeNot, SAP, ThirdLove, Trulia, and Verizon Media. They highlighted topics such as leaders' roles in combating workplace stigma, mental health as the next frontier of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and understanding wins and challenges from companies.

In 2019 alone, we trained employees, managers, and HR leaders across 50+ companies. Clients include New Relic, Pandora, RetailMeNot, and the National Human Resources Association (NHRA). From our workshops, 87% of participants feel more comfortable talking about mental health at work, 78% would be more willing to hire someone with a mental health condition, and many report learning new skills for supporting colleagues and employees. We have also expanded our training services to virtual formats as well as a certification program.

In late 2019, we also launched one of the first ever virtual communities for mental health employee resource groups where internal champions for mental health across companies can support each other to create culture change within their respective organizations. The community has over 60+ participating companies and is continuing to grow.
