Mental health concerns will directly impact one in every five people. The remaining four will know a friend, family member, coworker, or acquaintance that struggles with their mental health. Given this prevalence, it is essential that people build capacity to support those with mental health concerns because early identification and support typically lead to continued well-being. This workshop explores factors affecting mental health and provides a general overview of common adult mental illnesses. Most importantly, participants will learn how to be a support and discover strategies for creating more inclusive environments that reduce stigma surrounding mental health.
