Bringing mental health support to those in the zoo and aquarium industry by raising awareness and sharing ideas, resources, and tools. 

How we take care of ourselves each day directly correlates to how we can take care of others. For the zoo and aquarium industry, nothing is more important than the welfare of the animals in our care – which means supporting the wellbeing of our staff is critical. G.R.A.Z.E provides resources and training that support the mental health of industry staff and facilitate organizational shifts in that direction.

What We Do


Education

We provide staff support by providing educational seminars and trainings on topics such as implementing a positive work culture, compassion fatigue, and self care in a high-pressure work environment.

Critical Incident Response

We can deploy a team of trained professionals to your site to assist with the mental health of staff during various types of incident response, including natural disaster and traumatic animal loss.

Staff Support

We provide resiliency building programs for facilities looking for ways to assist their staff, and can provide grief support after animal loss as needed.
