Farmer Wellness Webinar: Supporting Others Within Your Means
January 21, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Most of the population either has experienced a mental health problem themselves or has a family member or close friend that has experienced one. It is not too surprising that social support has an enormous impact on health and well-being: People who believe that others will be there to support them have better outcomes in terms of both mental and physical health. But how do we offer this support? How do we approach conversations with someone who is showing signs or symptoms of a mental health problem?
This workshop is a review of signs and symptoms of common mental health problems, including anxiety, depression, and substance use. Participants will gain practical tools to support within one’s means and skills to provide initial help to individuals experiencing a mental health concern. Discuss tips on how to approach and navigate difficult conversations with family members, friends, or co-workers. Finally, understand the importance of maintaining healthy personal boundaries.
