This webinar was presented live in February 26, 2013.
Have you worked with, or supervised someone, dealing with mental health issues? Would you feel comfortable self-disclosing a mental health condition with your supervisor? If a staff member disclosed a mental health issue to you, would you know how to respond and support this individual? In this session we will discuss ways to create a positive and supportive environment, debunk mental health myths, support colleagues with their mental wellness, and engage in self-care.
