    Mental Wellness

    Presented by: Rebecca Fairman

    Rock Garden ~ Windsor Room

    1951 Bond St. Green Bay, WI

    7:30am – 9:30am


    Rebecca Fairman is the Executive Director of Connections for Mental Wellness, an initiative with the long-term goal of increasing mental wellness education, reducing the stigma surrounding mental health needs, and promoting the emotional well-being of individuals throughout Brown County.  Connections for Mental Wellness is a community-wide collective impact initiative that brings together and facilitates diverse groups of stakeholders (such as nonprofits, government, community advocates, schools, employers, health systems, and so on) to help address community needs and issues related to mental wellness.  It is funded through a significant, multi-year grant from the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Endowment from the Medical College of Wisconsin and a Basic Giving Partnership Grant from the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation.

    Rebecca has worked in social services and mental health care for over 20 years.  She has served in various roles with the Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, and Foundations Health & Wholeness, as well as volunteer service on a number of boards and committees.  Her work has focused on nonprofit management, fund development, and organizational development.  She holds a degree in Public Administration and Public Policy from the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay and is a certified trainer for Mental Health First Aid for Adults.

    Rebecca is passionate about the work being done through Connections for Mental Wellness.  She believes that through collaboration, education, and enhanced systems of care, we can create a community that values and embraces mentally healthy children, adults and families.


    What is mental illness?  Why should employers consider workplace programs focusing on mental illness?

    Rebecca will talk about what mental illness actually is and will separate facts from fiction.  She will discuss the impact mental illness and “poor mental health days” have on employers and the workplace.

    Key Learning Objectives:

    • Specific workplace strategies for employers to implement which support their workers

    • Learn from Successes – Rebecca will share success stories of local companies who have begun to use these resources in their workplaces.   

    • How to Get Involved - Rebecca will share how SHRM members can get involved in addressing mental illness in their workplaces and in the community by describing the work being done by Connections for Mental Wellness.  

    • Connections Which Provide Support - Rebecca will share how Connections can support human resource executives in this work.
