Mental Health Speaker

An Experienced Mental Health Speaker with Proven Results for Changing Lives

Now, more than ever, mental health is a topic at the forefront of society. One in five American adults has a mental illness, and of 1,000 full-time workers recently surveyed across the U.S., more than 30% said their mental health declined over the past year. Statistics show that this can cause a significant decrease in productivity and millions of workdays lost every year. With the pandemic accelerating the urgency around supporting employee mental health, now is the time for employers to embrace work policies and programs that emphasize employee well-being as a priority.

A healthy workplace is more productive and goal-oriented with a staff that is engaged

As a licensed psychotherapist and acclaimed national speaker passionate about destigmatizing mental illness and promoting mental health awareness, Joyce’s life’s work has been centered on helping people deal with mental health challenges in a constructive way. She prides herself on engaging in conversations surrounding mental health and offering tools to help people overcome their own personal challenges.

And as a renowned mental health practitioner, Joyce understands the unique needs of both individuals and organizations when it comes to addressing and destigmatizing mental health. Her approach is evidence-based, and her presentation fosters a conversation around mental health, while also providing resources for you and your staff.

‘Attending the course by Joyce Marter was an incredibly enlightening experience. Her passion for the subject matter was palpable, and their ability to engage the audience was truly impressive. The content was accessible to all the attendees and I left the course feeling inspired, motivated, and armed with valuable insights that I will carry with me in both my personal and professional life. I highly recommend Joyce Marter to anyone seeking an engaging thought provoking speaker who delivers impactful presentations with expertise and charisma.”
