Understanding Mental Health
January 20, 2022 at 9:00 am - 9:50 amFree
Understanding mental health can be difficult, but knowing how to support someone who might be in a mental health crisis can be even more challenging.
The goal of this session is to increase mental health literacy, while providing tools and skills to respond in a caring and respectful way.
Participants will learn to:
- Better understand mental health and mental illness;
- Understand structural and social stigma as barriers to seeking help; and
- Respond to concerns about a family member, friend or colleague.
This session has two required parts: Part 1-January 13 & Part 2-January 20, 9-9:50 am.
Facilitator: Amanda Swoboda, Workplace Health and Wellbeing Human Resources.
