MISSION AND HISTORY
Changing the Mindset (CTMS) initiative started under SG Consulting and Data LLC in 2017. 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).
After the implementation of the workshops, data collection and the positive feedback, Changing the Mindset Inc. was developed as a non-profit organization which offers minimal to no cost services to the consumers with a focus of empowerment and bringing awareness to mental health/trauma, professionalism/leadership, entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and health/wellness.
Since its pilot and launch, CTMS has provided over 30 workshops to 250 people and help start-up 15 programs and organizations.
