Creativity, self-care, resilience, mental health are only a few of the topics Dr. Bernstein addresses in her interactive workshops and events. The goal is to promote resilience long-term, and illuminate the importance of self-care, thoughtfulness for yourself and others, and prioritize mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health.
Anyone. Schools, businesses and environments alike. Students especially can feel like academic rock stars with amazing GPAs and test scores, but knowing how to prioritize self-care, mental health, and handle the stress of life's curveballs is what matters more than ever. OTB events include indoor and outdoor events, workshops and panels designed to meet the needs and interests of students on up.
Dr. Janeane Bernstein creates engaging and interactive workshops, panels and other experiences designed to address the mental health crisis. In 2023, after the publication of her new book, Bernstein introduced the Becoming Better Humans workshop/panel featuring students in conversation about issues that matter most to them, how the pandemic affected their lives, and strategies to promote social connectedness, and sustainable, impactful change. Below are a sample of OTB workshops designed to promote mental fitness, civic engagement, social connection, resilience and creativity. Schedule a consult to learn more.
Dr. Bernstein will create an experience that fits your needs and the needs of your target audience. In addition to workshops and panels, she also produces outdoor wellness events for all ages, featuring mental health and wellbeing resources, interactive activities, and meaningful social engagement.

"The Better Humans series provides meaningful conversations, engagement and an open forum to ask 'How are you? Really.' We must address the mental health pandemic in schools, businesses, and society, and create solutions that foster connection, kindness, empathy, and compassion." - Janeane Bernstein, EdD
