Have you ever wondered about how to offer meaningful support to someone with a mental health concern?

Being There_ How to Support someone with a Mental Health Concern

Every day, many Canadians struggle with mental health concerns – this may very well include our own friends, family members, and other loved ones. But when someone we care about is struggling, what can we do about it? How can we offer them meaningful support during a dark and difficult period in their lives, while also ensuring that we’re making time for self-care?

This webinar will explore the many ways in which we can offer meaningful support to those we care about in times of crisis, including reaching out to offer help, identifying mental health concerns, listening, and acting when necessary. Along with our expert guest, we will provide valuable advice to those who want to make a difference.
