“I am able to give people hope, which is one of the best gifts you can give someone.”
– Melissa, Clinical Supervisor
“When I was diagnosed with Bipolar I Disorder and Anxiety, I thought the life I had envisioned for myself was over. However, that is far from true. In fact, learning to manage my mental illnesses has made me the best, most whole version of myself. I work at Guild as a peer support specialist because I want others who are feeling like their lives are over to know that they are just beginning and there is hope for the life they want.”
– Breanna Bisek, Peer Support Specialist

Employee Wellness Program
With our GameOn! For Wellness initiative, we’ve written employee wellness into our business plan. We asked Guild staff what factors are a priority in their personal health, and together, we developed a program focused on the six areas identified: physical activity, breastfeeding/new parent support, nutrition, mindfulness, community support, and water consumption.
