NAMI, The National Alliance on Mental Illness, initiated a Wellness Week or “Rest Week”, providing employees paid time off for a mental health break from what has been a tumultuous year and a half.
Montgomery County NAMI affiliates have declared August 16th-20th as their local “Wellness Week” and encouraged their employees to use that time off to step away from work demands and to recharge and rest; taking care of their mental and physical health.
NAMI Montgomery County PA is encouraging Montgomery County employers to provide a time of wellness, whether it be an hour, a day, or the whole week, to their employees.
Make your people and their wellness a priority.
Don’t forget to post pictures to social media that week of how you are recharging, using #namimontcopa, or how your local business is participating! NAMI wants to highlight your company’s commitment to wellness.
