Description:

Mental health issues affect 1 in 5 individuals, and can range from mild to severe. Stigma often prevents us from having honest discussions about mental health, and as a result many of us do not realize when someone honestly needs help nor do we know how to respond appropriately. Learn how mental health issues may be impacting your workplace and how you can respond with knowledge and compassion. Learn to recognize signs of distress and how to take appropriate actions. Finally, learn where to find helpful resources in your community.
