Michael “Piecez” Prosserman shares his personal story on how he built a non-profit from the ground up over 15 years that uses hip hop to improve youth mental health. Unity grew from a grassroots idea to a national charity with 80 staff reaching over a quarter of a million youth across Canada. It was built from the dreams of artists, youth and eventually a long list of supporters. In this talk, Michael addresses navigating mental health challenges in a leadership role, building authentic team culture that supports well-being and simple strategies for self-care in teams.

Michael « Piecez » Prosserman raconte comment il a mis sur pied, à partir de rien et en une quinzaine d’années, un organisme sans but lucratif qui utilise le hip-hop pour améliorer la santé mentale des jeunes. Parti d’un projet très local, Unity est devenu un organisme national comptant 80 employés à l’écoute de plus d’un quart de millions de jeunes partout au Canada. L’organisme a pris de l’ampleur grâce aux rêves d’artistes et de jeunes ainsi qu’à de nombreux donateurs. Dans cette conférence, Michael parle de l’art de gérer les questions de santé mentale lorsqu’on occupe un poste de direction, du développement d’une culture d’équipe authentique favorisant le bien-être, et de stratégies simples pour l’autogestion de la santé au sein des équipes.
