PINEAPPLE SUPPORT CORPORATE TRAINING INITIATIVE TO HELP TEAM MEMBERS PROVIDE BETTER SUPPORT TO MODELS AND PEERS.
Dealing with mental health issues without the proper training can be traumatic for both the person struggling and the person attempting to help. We know that platform staff aren’t always equipped to deal with these issues, so we’re offering corporate training sessions for our sponsors so that their employees and team members know how to react, and what resources can be provided, when someone is in need.
The training sessions will cover topics including how to identify and react to a performer in crisis, how to support a sexual trauma survivor, spotting the early signs of mental health issues and invisible disabilities, as well as training in gender, sexual orientation, cyber bullying and BIPOC-specific support. Interactive training will take place regularly throughout the year and all recordings will be availble to watch online.
This is the first step in helping to build a greater web of support for industry workers. Equipped with the right knowledge and training, employees who work directly with models can play a critical role in providing crisis support.
