Webinar: Mental Health & Wellness 101 with the Mental Health Association in New York State
February 8, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EST
Mental Health and Wellness 101 helps participants to understand mental health in a holistic context and utilize basic mental health awareness in order to self-care and help others.
Mental Health and Wellness 101 participants will:
- Increase basic knowledge of mental health to help reduce stigma.
- Understand Mental Health as a continuum of wellness that defines us every day — it is illness, recovery, and all of the space in between.
- Promote wellness, treatment seeking behavior, recovery, and self-care.
- Identify and understand various signs & symptoms of mental illness.
Why is this important?
Consider this: the median time between the onset of mental illness (when symptoms first appear) and when an individual gets appropriate treatment is 10 years. During that time, a person is likely experiencing periods of increased symptomology and periods of wellness. Mental Health and recovery are dependent on an individual’s ability to recognize and manage where he/she is each day on the continuum between wellness and illness and take care accordingly, an important piece to quality of life.
This webinar is being presented by the Mental Health Association in New York State.
**All participants will have the option to request a certificate of attendance for 1.5 contact hours.**
