If you are an employer or service provider you may have been faced with a situation where you think a colleague or client may have mental illness issues.
What can you do to help this person, and at the same time maintain self care?
Supporting Healthy Minds at Work: A Forum for Employers and Service Providers, taking place on June 8th will provide you with practical tips on how you can help others.
The morning event will start with a light breakfast and a dynamic keynote address by Nick Petrella, a Mohawk College professor and mental health advocate who will talk about his experiences with depression and anxiety.
You'll have a chance to attend one of two workshops, Workplace Mental Health: An Introduction, or Recognizing when clients are unwell due to mental health issues.
There will be time for networking and visiting displays featuring information from a variety of local mental health services.
Cost is $20 per person.
