Things to Know
Before you attend our MHWP Assembly, here are a few but important things to know.
Relax & Unwind
This is you time to take off the caregiver hat, unplug from your to-do list and focus on recharging yourself. We encourage you to put your work emails on away mode and silence your phones while attending the assembly to create a space for yourself and others to be fully present. Does your employer have a mental health day policy? If so, the MHWP Assembly qualifies as a mental health day. We can provider your employer with a letter excusing you for the day of the assembly. If your employer does NOT have a mental health day policy and you'd like support introducing the idea to your employer, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll help advocate for you and your co-workers. Check out some information on the importance of mental health days in the workplace here.
Leave the work attire at home and dress as comfortable as you need to feel. Each quarterly assembly will involve special carved out time for some type of activity like Yoga, Qigong, hiking, art, movement, etc. so this is an essential need to know.
We will be providing light breakfast refreshments, boxed lunches, and snacks will be made available throughout the day along with water, coffee, and tea. Just make sure to RSVP and make your boxed lunch selection. Vegetarian and GF options available.
We have created this time with you in mind! For you to tap into that inner child and rediscover the meaning of fun. Be ready for group activities and discussions.
