Diversity - Mental Health
- Monday, October 4, 2021 from 1:00pm to 4:00pm
- Strand Union Building, Ballroom B - view map
In this workshop, participants will learn some basics about signs, symptoms, and prevalence of mental health disorders, as well as some prevailing cultural beliefs that contribute to stigma or barriers to help-seeking. Through discussion, self-reflective, and group activities, participants will explore these factors as well as learn skills for how to support and refer someone to campus or community resources.
Issues of mental health impact all of us at some point on the continuum of mental wellness. Regardless of our role on campus, we are likely to encounter a student, colleague, friend, or family member who has a mental health challenge. This workshop will help break down myths, biases, and stigma to teach key facts and helping skills for anyone who is interested in learning more. Content alert: mental health, depression, anxiety, suicide, substance use, and associated biases/stigma.
