ABOUT THIS COURSE

CMHA-NL’s Changing Minds is a mental illness education and awareness training program that reduces stigma and uses evidence-based approaches to teach better communication skills to help understand and respect those who have a mental illness. The foundation of Changing Minds is built on first-person perspectives of those with lived experience of mental illness. This interactive and empathy-building program is powerful and engaging. It will truly change your mind and help you break down myths about mental illness.

The workshop will include:

An in-depth understanding of mental illness from the perspective of those with lived experience

Instructional modules on mental illness

The connection between theoretical knowledge and individual experience

A model for front-line intervention
