Recent studies show that 20-25% of individuals in the U.S. have battled, or will battle, a mental illness in their lifetime. As a result, most people will either personally experience mental illness or will know someone who is impacted by mental illness. Unfortunately, that can be a difficult subject to breach for some. Protiviti is working towards breaking that stigma in the workplace to create a great place to work for all.
Protiviti’s global well-being Employee Network Group, ProMIND, is dedicated to promoting mental health and well-being for all, as well as reducing the stigma of mental health challenges through open dialogue and support for one another, resource sharing and encouraging mindful activities. Their vision is to provide a network and resources for our people to pursue stronger mental well-being, leading to more confidence and higher levels of happiness.
Throughout the year, ProMIND hosts various webinars and events that help promote awareness surrounding the topic of mental well-being. Quarterly, larger programs are hosted where we come together and collaborate with offices across the country. In addition to events ProMIND hosts, they also provide avenues for support through their website on a personal “self-serve” basis.
