Mental Health Basics: Supporting Ourselves and Others

  • University of Toronto (map)

About this event

This is an interactive and skill-based mental health workshop. The goal of this workshop is to increase students' awareness of ways to support themselves and others from a mental health perspective. Participants will gain a new understanding of mental health from a trauma-informed perspective and will leave with concrete strategies and tools for embracing vulnerability and facilitating connection with peers. Participants are encouraged to bring their own questions with regards to mental health and will be given time to talk in small groups and ask questions to facilitators.
