5 Takeaways From WCWI’s Expert Contributor on Mental Health

 

Mettie’s work is focused on protecting minds in panicked times.  Blending her personal experience as a suicide loss survivor and her professional expertise, Mettie founded A World Without Suicide (AWWS) to help employers protect the mental wellbeing of their valued employees. 

As WCWI’s first Expert Contributor starting in 2020, the WCWI Community was fortunate to learn from Mettie during WCWI’s Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing in Your Workplace webinar facilitated in May 2020. We’re look forward to partnering with Mettie as a subject matter expert to provide our statewide member community with masterful strategic practices and inclusive industry insight.
