Workshop Description

This is a live virtual event using Zoom, an online meeting platform. Please check system requirements prior to registering.

Mental health concerns will directly impact one in every five people. The remaining four will know a friend, family member, co-worker, or acquaintance that struggles with their mental health. It is essential that organizations build capacity to support those with mental health concerns because early identification and support typically lead to continued employee well-being. This workshop will explore factors affecting mental health, give participants a general overview of common adult mental illnesses, and, most importantly, show how to be a support. Participants will learn strategies for creating a more inclusive work environment that reduces stigma surrounding mental health.
