Description

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

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. This workshop is designed for any person who knows someone who has mental health concerns. While it is not your responsibility to diagnose mental illness or be a “counsellor”, it can be both important and helpful for you to be aware of the signs and symptoms that may indicate whether someone is struggling with their mental health. This workshop will explore factors affecting mental health, give participants a general overview of common adult mental illnesses and, most importantly, how to be a support.

Topics to be covered include:

Mental Illness and Mental Health, The Whole Picture, Stigma and Myths about Mental Illness, History of Mental Illness, Illness as Influence, not Identity, Mental Disorders Overview, Schizophrenia, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety Disorders, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Personality Disorders, Mental Illness and Addictions, Mental Illness and Suicide, Creating a Supportive Environment, People and Organizations to Access, Finding a Qualified Counsellor, Supporting Those That May Be Struggling, Personal Reflection, Sharing with Others, Providing Ongoing Support
