Coinciding with National Mental Health Month, Women in Toys, Licensing and Entertainment (WiT), the industry’s leading non-profit organization for the advancement of women, has announced the launch of WiT Wellness, a year-round initiative designed to raise awareness and mobilize conversations around mental health and well-being and inspire individuals and companies to incorporate mental wellness into their daily lives. 

The overall goal of WiT Wellness is to share the tools and resources women and their allies need to manage and maintain well-being and good mental health. Additionally, WiT will host ongoing constructive conversations focused on helping to diffuse the stigma around mental health.  

During the month of May, WiT will provide a full calendar of programming, events, digital content and shared resources that kick off and support the WiT Wellness initiative. 

“My hope is that the more we talk about mental health issues, the less stigma there is attached to getting help and seeking support,” says Janice Ross, president, Women in Toys. “We are committed to supporting the well-being of our members, and I’m excited to see how the WiT Wellness Program can make a positive difference in the lives of women in our community and throughout our industry.”
