Navigating The Mosaic of Mental Well-Being

This training at your location has two options:

Option 1: Hands-on experiential process where each participant starts a mosaic heart, finishes a mosaic heart, and receives one to keep.

Time: 2 hours plus setup/clean-up time    Cost: $40/ participant, minimum $320 (Plus travel expenses if outside 20 miles from our headquarters)

***If have more than 25 participants, requires at least 3 weeks notice for the event

Option 2: Each participant contributes broken pieces to a larger heart that will be completed by Mosaics after the event and given to the organizer.  Four small hearts will also be given to the organizer to hand out at their discretion.

Time: 1 ½ hours    Cost: $425 (Plus travel expenses if outside 20 miles from our headquarters)

Both options occur while talking through principles of how to identify, respond to, and support individuals and families struggling with mental well-being.  These principles correspond with the analogies of the mosaic making process.
