Breaking The Silence: How To Have Supportive Mental Health Conversations National April 13, 2024 RegisterBrochure

3:30-5:30pm EST

Join us for our final workshop in the virtual National Spring Education workshop series.

The changes and challenges that we have faced have had a significant impact on the mental health of our community members. Research highlights the vulnerability of our mental well-being, with one in five adults experiencing serious mental health challenges. Silence surrounding mental illness is costly. You may feel ill-equipped to provide meaningful assistance. But what if you could become comfortable having supportive mental health conversations and gain awareness of symptoms and available support options? This workshop empowers you to approach mental health conversations confidently, connecting those in need with life-changing resources. Break the silence,  through understanding and the ability to foster. Together, let’s create communities where everyone’s mental well-being matters.
