This webinar will provide two compelling stories of the power of vulnerability. A CSO for a major global corporation will discuss his mental health journey and the positive impact he and his team experienced when stigma was overcome. Secondly, a security professional with over 40 years of experience will share his story of a family member’s mental health journey and its impact on his career, his perspective on mental health, and giving back to others and work and the community.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Embrace mental health the same as physical health
  • Understand how the stigma barrier can hinder self-care and improvement
  • Consider embracing mental health with a new perspective on vulnerability
  • Getting more involved with mental health initiatives at work and in your community
  • Experience the positive benefits of compassion towards others
