Bringing Mental Health Skills Virtually During COVID-19, January 19th from 11:00Am to 12:00pm

A 60 mins Mental Health Virtual Workshop

The overall objective of this workshop is to provide an opportunity for community members to briefly review and learn some skills and knowledge around mental health. The “new normal” of COVID – 19 has changed the way we interact and perhaps added some additional stress. Learning about how we operate in these times could support not only our own mental health but the mental health of those around us.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to help themselves and others by:

• Describing what is mental health,

• Understanding how stress impacts the mind and body,

• Listing the ways to help yourself,

• Describing ways to support others,

• Identifying the resources, self-care and next steps for improving individual and collective mental health.

An increased focus will look at individual and social skills that allow humans to interact safely in these unprecedented times.
