Event Description

Understanding Mental Health Challenges

Understanding mental health can be difficult. Learning 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 effectively to others 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

·         Learn how to respond when concerned about a family member, friend or colleague


This event has a limited capacity, so please RSVP so we can make sure that we have enough space for you at the event.
