UW-Green Bay & Mental Health America Lakeshore to Host Annual Mind the Mind Symposium | Local News | sheboygansun.com

UW-Green Bay and Mental Health America Lakeshore are partnering to host the second annual Mind the Mind Symposium to be held at Blue Harbor Resort in Sheboygan on Wednesday, June 19, 2024. The event will focus on the collective effort needed to promote mental wellness across communities and professions.

The event is in-person from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and attendance may award continuing education credit for health and human services professionals. Seats are still available.

The keynote speaker is Sinclair Ceasar III, CEO of Sinclairity Consulting LLC. Ceasar has been a catalyst for positive change, relentlessly advocating for mental health and well-being in professional settings. He will address, “Mental Health + Leadership: Embracing Imperfections Through Storytelling.” As a former improv instructor and troupe member, Sinclair infuses his presentations with elements of improvisation, keeping audiences engaged, entertained and on their feet.

According to Mental Health America, nearly 1 in 5 American adults will have a diagnosable mental health condition in any given year. Forty-six percent of Americans will meet the criteria for a diagnosable mental health condition sometime in their life, and half of those people will develop conditions by the age of fourteen.

It is more important than ever to build a stronger mental health system that provides the care, support and services needed to help people build better lives. An inadequate mental health system affects individuals, families and communities, according to recent findings from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).

In diverse and dynamic breakouts throughout the day, presenters will address an array of subjects to better serve the complex and evolving needs of individuals and communities:

Prioritizing Mental Health as a Workplace Safety Issue

Brainspotting: A Mind/Body Therapy Tool

Forgiveness is the Future

Balancing Act: Work-Life Integration for Health & Human Service Professionals

It’s Not an Anger Problem

Understanding the 5 Workplace Appreciation Languages

Tapping into Your Health: Using Emotional Freedom Techniques for Self-Care and Empowerment

The Mind-Body Connection: Exploring the Impact of Food Intolerance on Mental Health

Grow Where You’re Planted: Holistic Leadership Development for Service-Based Leaders

In an optional closing session, Sarah Giencke will lead a calming and relaxing class of TRE®. Decompress from the busyness of the day and leave feeling grounded, centered and regulated.
