This training will cover an overview of the Make it Ok campaign to reduce stigma around mental illness; how to “be with”, yourself and someone else. Acceptance and remaining non-judgmental are key. Included in the workshop is practicing and role-playing communication skills (what to say and what not to say). The majority of this training will be practicing skills of listening, empathy, acknowledging your own fear, and continuing the conversation. The hope is that participants leave the workshop more equipped and empowered to keep this conversation around mental health going.
This is a free workshop held at Central Lakes College room C236. Space is limited, please register.
