EveryMind Awarded Workplace Excellence Seal of Approval

The Alliance for Workplace Excellence (AWE) awards employers for their exemplary commitment to building excellent places to work in Montgomery County, MD and throughout the United States. Founded by Montgomery County and Discovery Communications, AWE is dedicated to increasing the number of excellent workplaces through education and recognition, as a means to enhance the quality of life for its citizens and empower economic growth.

EveryMind offers generous benefits and a vision-focused culture that creates an environment where employees are engaged and active in the mission to Strengthen Communities and Empower Individuals to Reach Optimal Mental Wellness.

EveryMind is honored to receive the Workplace Excellence Seal of Approval for the 16th time! Our employee programs recognize the importance of spending time with loved ones, which is why our employees are offered more than 20 holidays including summer and winter mental health days and a day off to volunteer for a charity of their choice, in addition to standard vacation and sick leave. By providing our staff with a supportive and caring work environment, we can help prevent burnout and increase productivity.


Building Resiliency: Managing the Impact of Prolonged Stress During COVID-19

On May 28, 2020, EveryMind hosted a virtual Mental Wellness Town Hall focused on the importance of resiliency as we navigate during difficult times.

Our distinguished panel of contributors offered tips and strategies as well as resources available to support those who are struggling or just need a little extra help.


Follow Up Conversations to Angst Screening

In response to your feedback, EveryMind has invited Dr. William Stixrud and Ned Johnson, authors of The Self-Driven Child, to return to answer the questions they couldn’t get to during the panel discussion following the screening of Angst.

We will hold two follow up discussions:

For Parents – May 14, 2020 from 7:00 to 8:00 pm

For Educators – May 20, 2020 from 12:00 to 1:00 pm (Christina Conolly from Montgomery County Public Schools will also be available to answer questions during the educators discussion)

 

As with the film screening, a link to join the conversation will be sent 24 hours prior to the start of the event.

Participation in each discussion will be limited, so sign up today!  If there is a huge demand, we will start a waitlist and schedule additional future conversations.
