The research is clear:  Organizations who invest in workplace mental health/wellness are finding a yield of four times the ROI and can increase productivity, improve employee retention, and support diversity and inclusion.

Workplace research indicates mental health and wellness is becoming an integral part of the diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) movement.  NAAAP is a strategic partner in this DEI initiative by pioneering a national program: Self-Care and Wellness by NAAAP. Our mission is to provide a comprehensive, multi-dimensional program founded on cultural competence to promote mental health and holistic wellness for professionals.

NAAAP will address three dimensions of wellness:

Emotional Wellness

Financial Wellness

Physical Wellness

The Self-Care and Wellness program by NAAAP has created and curated programs and is building a stable of licensed clinicians and providers as well as subject matter experts in the field of mental health and wellness. If topics like Resilience in the Workplace, Financial Literacy for the Multigenerational Family, Strategic Mindfulness, Yoga for Executives and short court tennis for team meetings appeal to your corporate and community organization needs, please reach out to us at sponsor@naaap.org.
