MISSION AND HISTORY
Changing the Mindset (CTMS) initiative started under SG Consulting and Data in 2018. The initiative started with a Health and Wellness program that provided workshops and support for those that wanted to modify their current lifestyle choices. After the work completed with the Health and Wellness program, the team developed another initiative called Systems 8, where 8 free workshops were conducted in the community centered around 4 content areas (Health/Wellness, Mental health/Trauma, Professionalism/ Leadership and Empowerment). The initiative provided an opportunity to gain information and to develop systems and processes for enhancing an individual’s personal and/or professional skillset.
After the implementation of the workshops and the positive feedback, Changing the Mindset Inc. was developed as a non-profit organization that offered minimal to no cost services to the consumers with a focus of empowerment and bringing awareness to mental health/trauma, professionalism/leadership, and health/wellness. Since it’s pilot and launch, CTMS has provided over 150 workshops and program opportunities to over 500 people.
In 2020, Changing the Mindset was impacted greatly by Covid-19 and the organization had to pivot to focus on the greatest need at the time. The team held a virtual press conference with the community and other non-profit leaders to gather much needed information. The team gathered that the greatest need at this time was technology and bullying. Changing the Mindset, pivot services and changed their model to start providing programming for youth to address bullying and to enhance and promote technology skills.
