An interactive online zoom training on April 11, 2023 – 7:00 to 9:00 PM
One in every five Canadians experiences a mental health problem within a given year. While we often know a lot about physical illness, there tends to be less knowledge about mental illness or substance use problems. It prevents people from seeking help for themselves and from providing appropriate support to people around them.
This Talk Will Cover:
- What is mental health?
- Why do we need to talk about mental health?
- Stigma and mental health
- Ways to manage your mental health – coping strategies
