To accomplish those goals, FINN created the “Mind Together” coalition – a collaborative effort that would aim to eliminate stigma around mental health and create healthy working environments. The launch and ongoing programs would be supported by proactive media outreach, creative communications campaigns and strategic messaging support. Additionally, FINN helped tout leaders engaged with the project as thought leaders in the mental health advocacy and employer space.
FINN not only created the vision for the “Mind Together” coalition, but also conducted partner outreach and worked with relevant parties to set benchmarking goals. At the launch, FINN and Yahoo! signed on Kellogg Company, Snap Inc. and Spotify as the initial coalition members. In the first year, the coalition’s work was covered 15 times in media outlets for a total of 84 million impressions. Coalition members were engaged in announcement-led and proactive media outreach, with headlines in Fast Company, Digiday, Forbes, and HR Dive.
