With all that is going on in today's world, both business and personal, mental health and wellness is more important than ever.  UPMC Workpartners will present on the following two topics to provide us with tools for our own personal lives as well as sharing and applying at our workplaces.

Facilitating Mental Wellness in the Workplace: A Toolkit for Leaders (Alicia Fairman)

Understand the vast array of concerns that employees experience and bring to work with them. Learn how to use professional boundaries to show compassion without becoming over-involved in your employee’s lives.

For over two decades, I have worked with individuals and their families in group and individual settings to address a variety of mental health and substance use concerns. I have provided supervision and training to substance use disorder treatment teams, including the importance of self-care techniques in programming for patients as well as personal needs to avoid concerns related to burnout and compassion fatigue. For three years, I have worked as an EAP Program Manager providing consultation to leaders, training to departments, and stress management response to departments that have experienced a disruptive event.

Resilience: Finding Hope In Hardship (Cindy Grindel)
