Mind Share Partners

Mind Share Partners is a national nonprofit that is changing the culture of workplace mental health so that both employees and organizations can thrive. Up to 80% of people will have a diagnosable mental health condition at some point during their lifetime—that means mental health affects every meeting, every phone call, and every workplace. We believe that if workplaces commit to reducing stigma, supporting their employees with mental health challenges, and addressing related workplace factors, we can drastically improve individual lives, company cultures, and workplace productivity.

What we do

Mental health is integral to the future of work as well as to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Since 2020, it has moved from a nice-to-have to a must-have, but few workplaces know how to execute. Between the lasting effects of the pandemic, racial trauma, the political divide, and more, now is the time to make a sea change in eliminating stigma and creating mentally healthy workplaces. We tripled our impact during 2020 and are poised for significant growth. Launched in 2017, we have proven our program model and are ready to scale to meet this unique moment. We have two program areas:

1. Movement Building: Mind Share Partners is leading the social movement to create mentally healthy workplaces. We normalize mental health at work by engaging in public discussion at events and in thought pieces, influencing coalitions and campaigns, and by coaching senior leaders to be changemakers. We host a free virtual community to support company-sponsored employee resource groups. We run two columns on workplace mental health in Forbes and Thrive Global and have written for Harvard Business Review. Our work has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, TIME, and more.

2. Training & Advising: We help executives, managers, and colleagues to build safe spaces, facilitate hard conversations, and learn tools and strategies to navigate mental health at work. We take a proactive, preventative, management approach. We've worked with industry leaders in tech, finance, professional services, and retail, including BlackRock, Genentech, Morrison & Foerster, Pinterest, Verizon Media, and others.
