August Wellness: Mental Health Month


Human Resources' Thrive Wellness Program is pleased to highlight our own Mental Health Month by providing you with tailored resources to aid in your personal and professional development:

  • Human Resources and the Libraries continue the Book of the Month series with August's selection, Talking to Strangers by Malcolm Gladwell. Talking to Strangers studies miscommunication, interactions, and assumptions people make when dealing with those that they don't know. As this book studies historical events, it also helps explain where the human mind succeeds and fails when cooperating with others.
  • The Pepperdine monthly wellness theme for August is Mental Health, for which we have compiled and attached a helpful resource guide for you.
  • Visit the Human Resources blog, HR Happenings, for the latest webinar offerings.

We hope these resources will help you to discover more proactive ways to ensure you're the healthiest you can be and can further educate others around you.
