May is Mental Health Awareness Month and Visible is teaming up with various community partners to help get the conversation started around mental wellness. Here are several ways to get involved:
A #SimpleCheckIn Matters Visible is partnering with our friends at the Mental Health Coalition, an organization dedicated to ending the stigma surrounding mental health, to promote the importance of friends checking in on friends. Use your Visible device to see how friends, family, colleagues, and even neighbors are doing throughout the month and start the conversation around mental wellness. Checking in can be using your Visible device to call, text, or send a message via social. And the Friends Supporting Friends Roadmap has tips and tools you can use to start the conversation around mental wellness or offer support. On Instagram, you can also use Face Filters created by the Mental Health Coalition to encourage open conversations around mental health.
Get rid of your midweek stress Visible and FORWARD__Space are teaming up to provide free midweek workout classes to take care of your mind, body and spirit. Grab a friend and register today! A class just for Visible members is Wednesday, May 5th so reserve your spot today. Additional classes will be available Wednesday May 12th and Wednesday May 19th (all classes free for the first 500 people).
As a business Visible strives to support the mental wellness of our teams. We've instituted initiatives like “Visible Me Time,” to give employees 90 minutes, everyday - no questions asked - that they can use to focus on their own mental wellbeing. As has become the norm, we also offer free counseling to employees and their families. We are committed to togetherness and creating a positive impact for our employees and community.
Tell us how you are checking in on friends this May on social and let’s work together to get the conversation started around mental wellness.
