Member Benefit – Robyn Priest LYT

Discounted Mental Health Workshops & Training

Does your team need to get more comfortable with having open, honest conversations about mental health and mental health challenges? 

Do you and/or members of your team look like a “deer in the headlights” when someone starts sharing about their struggles? It’s really ok – that’s the case for most of us.

We are often not sure how to be in uncomfortable situations and conversations; what to say that will be understanding or helpful.

Now is the chance to change that. Take advantage of these exclusive offers to better equip you and/or your team. 

If you’re an employer interested in addressing mental health in the Workplace, Robyn Priest LIVE YOUR TRUTH (RPLYT) can help.

Learn about RPLYT, a leader in the field of mental health and peer support training. Robyn, Charlotte and their posse are experts in educating others to break down stigma, teaching and sharing better ways to support those around you and about the magic of peer support.

Their workshops cover a wide gamut of mental health in order to break the stigma around mental health. They are delivered by people with their own experience of mental health and/or addictions issues or family members of those with those struggles.

RPLYT Goals are to:
  • Spark dialogue and transparency
  • Create a safe space in which people do not feel alone in their own mental health journey
  • Provide opportunities for continued independent or family support
