Since 1949, Mental Health month has been observed in May in order to raise awareness about the importance of mental health and remove the stigma surrounding getting help. In this month's workshop you will have an unique opportunity to share in the personal journey of one individual through severe depression to wholeness and health. In this intimate workshop you will learn that:
- Mental health conditions are just that, health conditions. They are not our fault.
- Healing starts when we share our stories, thereby building community and stamping out stigma.
- Adopting self-care strategies, including exercise, recruiting Supportive, Energizing And Loving (SEAL) Team is key to recovery.
