Tailored For Your Audience To Inspire Self Literacy and Self Advocacy For Fostering Public Mental Health Literacy

Mental health plays a critical role in every aspect of our lives. It determines our well-being, as well as how productive, satisfied, and engaged we are in our relationships, life, and work. This is not just relevant to mental illness, but to the more accurate reality of everyday mental health in the lives of individuals, employees, and the culture of our workplaces. Mental health struggles show up in things like stress, anxiety, exhaustion, burnout, and negative coping habits. While individuals and organizations tend to understand this, most lack the foundational systems and strategies needed to build a culture of lasting mental health and wellness.


In this powerful and insightful presentation, Nora Plambeck educates audiences through poignant personal storytelling, critical research, and practical advice. She demonstrates how today’s mental health strategies operate from a lack of public and individual literacy, leading to stigma, fear, shame, and preventing individuals from getting the help they need. It also results in policies that don’t account for individual differences, or strategies that just don’t work. Mental health practices must be informed, diverse, and empower individuals to advocate for themselves.

In this session, audiences will have an opportunity to explore a different mental health strategy operating model that adopts inclusivity, diversity, and personal agency for a lasting approach.

  • Education and insights into the continuum of mental health, from illness to wellness

 Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence is about our competence in dealing with emotions. We learn about the four components of emotional Intelligence

and strategies to help enhance our  ability to manage emotions in positive ways in order to relieve stress, communicate effectively, and empathize with others


Identifying Limited Beliefs Within

Our Strengths

People differ in the way that they think about their strengths,

some may even believe that one of their strengths is a weakness.

Learning our personality parts and how to work with them, opens doors of limitless growth opportunities.


Uncovering The Many Masks

Hiding Our Emotions

We were taught to engage in expressive suppression,  to mask social feelings, and appear strong.

Emotional literacy is about one's ability to identify, understand, and differentiate between emotional states and awareness that there is no such thing as a “right” or “wrong” emotion. 


The World Outside Your Comfort Zone

 The fear zone is, by definition, scary and uncomfortable.

Cultivate the necessity to move out the boundaries of your comfort zone to experience growth. 


Build Resilience And Coping Skills

 Resilience is not a trait that people either have or do not have.

It can be learned and developed

in anyone. Understand how each person can unpack their resources of resilience, that specifically work for them to overcome challenging life events and experiences.
