MindShield offers a simple solution to the complex problem of Burnout & Trauma. As a training, MindShield is the protective equipment for First Responders and those who work in a high-intensity workplace to shield their mind from the stress of their daily life.
. . .
Day after day, call after call, First Responders are always “on”, ready to intervene to save others and face traumatic situations: when everyone is panicking and running around, uncertain what to do, it is the First Responders who intervene. They are trained to be functional and active during very stressful situations. As a result, they experience heightened brain activity which in turn becomes the problem: how can they turn off their brain and go back to a normal baseline while asked to be always ready to act?
First Responders are not trying to escape trauma, working under stress is the nature of their duty and they are trained to respond to situations. What they need is to learn how to turn that constant “action mode” off.
MindShield is an integrated approach, a training that helps first responders transition from work to personal life and building shields to protect their mental self in the face of trauma. The program was originally created for firefighters and can be taught through an interactive learning management system that won’t interfere with rotations. MindShield can bring the entire department together without taking anyone off-duty. Our program is designed to give first responders the training they need without drawing them away from their jobs. It aids relationships at work and at home to provide a comprehensive and simple solution to burnout, trauma, and stress.
MindShield isn’t counseling. It’s training that first responders need to shore up their defenses so they can save lives.
MindShield is a new integrative approach to the mind-body connection that gives clinicians a simple, easy tool to help clients manage stress and burnout. More and more people are seeking help with their mental health as nearly half of American households have at least one member in therapy. With so many people seeking aid mental health professionals need integrative and understandable tools to help their clients manage anxiety and Trauma symptoms.
Mental health professionals are people driven by a passion to help others, but this can be difficult when they are exhausted and overworked. They need a shield to protect them from vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue. As well as helping clients, MindShield is a skill set that can benefit mental health professionals. They can use the tools they teach to manage their own exhaustion and see the effectiveness of MindShield’s simple philosophy.
MindShield is an intuitive program taught through an interactive learning management system. It is easy to work into client schedules and clinicians' hours. Once it has been learned it can be integrated seamlessly into daily life providing a lifelong tool for better mental balance.
MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS
The cost of physician turnover and reduced clinical hours has been estimated to be around $4.5 billion. Burnout among healthcare workers also affects the patients. Many patients find themselves in untenable situations as they await treatment from overworked nurses and physicians trying to do it all.
Healthcare is a strenuous industry that requires rigorous study and dedication. It also requires the ability to make decisions and support those in need through a series of stressful situations.
MindShield is a fully integrated approach that trains healthcare providers on how to better connect with others while maintaining their own mental shields. Delivered through an interactive learning management system Mindshield fits easily into everyday life and can be implemented without the need for extensive time away from work.
Teachers are often evaluated on the test scores of their students which they have little control over. Not to mention they are not trained to deal with difficult children or highly traumatic situations. These factors all combine to create a work environment that is simply too stressful to handle causing 40% of teachers to leave their profession within their first 5 years.
Good teachers care about their kids and will spend additional unpaid time acting as a mentor or support system. They are also expected to come in happy and upbeat day after day. It’s no wonder many teachers suffer from anxiety and depression or feel that they are fighting an impossible battle to do their job without the tools they need.
Further, children mimic adult behavior as they are learning and growing. Are anxiety and depression really skills we want to teach future generations?
MindShield trains teachers to better protect their mental health enabling them to make better decisions while presenting a whole and fulfilled example of adulthood to the children they teach. MindShield is not therapy. It is a fully integrated approach delivered through an interactive learning management system. Teachers will find it easy to use and effective without overwhelming their already busy schedules.
In the U.S. one-third of employees work more than 45 hours per week with 9.7 million working over 60. Work from home makes the distinction between work and home murkier than ever and while the cost of living is rising wages have been left in the dust. It’s no wonder people experience more stress now than ever before.
Toxic cultures pay for their attitude in turnover cost each. The average turnover rate is about 17.8% across all industries. Replacing an employee costs an average of 33% of their salary, depending on the position.
For a company of 100 employees with an average annual turnover rate, assuming everyone who leaves is entry-mid level, that is an annual cost of $1.7 million.
MindShield offers a solution that creates a positive company culture allowing employers to lower their turnover costs and employees to live happier, more fulfilling lives. Our integrated training program delivered through an interactive learning management system helps employees separate work from home while giving them tools to deal with their stress response in either place.
