Please join Disability:IN North Texas and our two special guest speakers, Tim Allen and Dr. Rebecca Harvey.
Tim Allen will discuss the communities that Achieve serves and the services that benefit local companies and employers including its employment program for non-veterans with disabilities.
Dr. Rebecca Harvey will join us to speak on approaching mental wellness conversations with your employees. She will provide education for understanding what individuals may be struggling with and offer frontline interventions you can suggest. For more difficult situations, resource considerations will be provided.
