Mental Health 101:
Better Mental Health for Everyone
Mental health describes our emotional, psychological, and social wellbeing. It affects how we think, feel and act, how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Working toward your optimal state of mental wellness means you can best realize your potential. It also means you can best contribute to your family, friends, co-workers, community and country. This is why better mental health is not just good for each of us individually — it’s good for all of us as a society.
This workshop is intended to allow participants to talk openly and positively about mental health and learn researched based strategies to improve mental health in a compassionate environment free from judgment or persecution. This workshop is not intended to replace therapy, but rather serves to reduce the stigma and obstacles that often prevent people from seeking assistance in a time of need.
“Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.” -Nido Qubein
