Beyond the Books - Mental Health Literacy Training

July 5th, 2024 1:39 PM
Beyond the Books - Mental Health Literacy Training

Beyond the Books is a mental health literacy training that will first provide participants with general information on the prevalence of mental challenges and illness in our university community. It will then help participants to identify signs of troubling behaviour or distress, and give them skills to engage in a preliminary discussion to determine if referral to a professional is necessary.

Participants will also learn how and where to refer appropriately in a compassionate and effective manner. This session is designed for individuals who do not have ongoing relationships with individuals but whose roles are such that they may have one-off, in-depth conversations. Students, staff, and faculty are welcome to attend! Instructors are qualified from the Wellness Education Centre.

From Thursday, July 18, 2024 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM EDT at Online.
