Global Workplace Wellness Summit to Fundraise for Mental Health and Addiction Recovery Services

Bridging the Gap - Supporting Mental Health Globally

The demand for mental health and addiction recovery among professionals is on the increase globally. In many parts of the world, employers do not provide extended health benefits for employees and their families. In those cases, community mental health and addiction services are their only hope. Even for employees with benefits, community programs fill the gap when their benefits do not extend to cover what’s needed for a full recovery. The Global Workplace Wellness Summit will lend its platform at the 5th Annual Summit to be held September 28-29, 2022, in the western Canadian city of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada to fundraise for Sara Riel Inc., a community mental health and addictions service provider in that city. Sara Riel Inc. has been providing mental health and addiction recovery services in Winnipeg since 1977.

The
mental health crisis is a global phenomenon and very much in line with the Summit’s goal to promote wellness at work for employees globally. Busy employees are often unaware of support for mental health and addiction recovery for themselves or family members, so collaboration between workplaces and communities is needed to create awareness of existing services and to establish more programs like Sara Riel Inc. 

Our aim is to create awareness of the importance of community mental health services to address the growing demands, so employees can attain the tools to be well. Collaboration between workplaces and their communities is essential if we are to adequately integrate mental health and addictions recovery needs here and around the globe”; says Joyce Odidison, Founder of the Global Workplace Wellness Summit

There will be many opportunities for attendees to learn about Sara Riel at the September Summit. Proceeds from the Summit ticket sales will go to Sara Riel to extend support services in Winnipeg. Donations can also be made directly to Sara Riel Inc.'s website. Sara Riel’s team is looking for volunteers interested in helping to build bridges for mental health and addiction recovery at a community level.
