Our sister organization, Nonprofit Wellness, completed a Pilot to prevent burnout and promote mental health among stressed-out nonprofit staff. The report is ready and we'd love for you to read our five findings and five recommendations.
I’ve been attending your Tuesday webinars and have been loving them. My team and I are in charge of promoting wellness and self/team-care across our campus and one of our biggest goals is trying to get people to take a break! Tuesday’s #TakeFive was right on point and gave me a lot of ideas to promote with our staff.

Appreciate your research and attention to detail."
Need more support nurturing physical, mental, and team health at work? Various webinars are now on our YouTube channel, most 40 minutes or less, with helpful tips/tools to take back to your team. We also have 10-minute workouts to spice up your day and juice up your body/brain breaks, as well as a one-minute series of bilingual "Consejos de Bienestar" videos.
In July 2020, we released the evaluation of a 60-person Pilot program on physical, mental, and team health at DC nonprofits. The project is led by Nonprofit Wellness, which has a fund at the Greater Washington Community Foundation. Check out our Wellness Equity report!

Ty and Susan spoke to North Star Sleep School on this podcast Also in 2021, Susan took Tony to task on a new Nonprofit Radio (invited back after Susan and Mo Abdullah talked with Tony on the 2020 Team-care pod). From 2018 but still fresh is this podcast with host Jakub Górnicki, recorded when Susan was the only American trainer at Megaphone2018, a TechSoup Europe conference in Cluj-Napoca.
Susan's nonprofit management, fundraising, facilitating and team-building advice rests on three decades of real-world experience. Short-term coaching brings fresh tools, help with activities, and new approaches to mental health @work.
These interactive (online or on-site) workshops focus on brain science and increasing your teams' resilience, productivity, and joy. Great for brown bag lunches, conferences, or staff retreats.
The reality is, all stress isn't equal. We developed a Wellness Equity curriculum that addresses identity and circumstance stressors, creating a team conversation in a new way.
Teachers can't burn out. Our Nonprofit Wellness Education team can train school staff on self-care and team-care tools.
