Mental Health Works is a program developed by the Canadian Mental Health Association. The program can be delivered three ways: Core (6 hours), In Focus (3 hours) or Essentials (1 hour). Jack Veitch, Health Educator with the Canadian Mental Health Association-HKPR will introduce you to the one-hour Mental Health Works Essentials course which provides a high-level introduction to Mental Health Works, mental health awareness, responding to some common issues, and psychological health and safety. By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Consider mental health as embedded within overall health.
- Understand mental health and common mental health problems in terms of balance.
- Understand the impact of stigmatizing language and beliefs, their own and that of others.
