Whole Health Employment Support and Training (WHEST)
WHEST is much more than a basic job skills program.
This 11-week program will review several areas of focus to help improve your:
Guidance in the First 3 Months of Employment as it Relates to Relationships with Coworkers and Supervisors, Job Duties, and Ethics
Leadership Skills Building
Mentorship in the Discovery of Personal Strengths
Participants will learn job readiness skills to support them in obtaining gainful employment. This Whole Health approach to employment incorporates the use of soft skills, mentorship, and leadership development to support a strength-based, person centered pathway to occupational wellness. Peer Support Specialist facilitators provide guidance to individuals in the first 3 months of employment modeling healthy professional relationships and “on the job” ethics.
Mentorship & Leadership
The Whole Health Employment Support and Training (WHEST) program provides mentorship in the development of professional goals, discovery of personal strengths, and the continued building of leadership skills. Participants are encouraged to continue mentorship relationships with the Peer Support Specialist facilitators. For those who complete the WHEST curriculum, and have interest, we do offer a track which allows individuals to learn about peer support and eventually take the Peer Support Training.
