Mental Health Awareness

May 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


May 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This is an event for UNC employees, faculty, and staff only!

At one time or another, everyone experiences symptoms of mental illness. Too frequently the response to such symptoms in the workplace is confusion, fear, judgment, avoidance and outright rejection. This leads to a worsening of symptoms and a deterioration of performance. This training is designed to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness and to promote ways of supporting one another in the workplace.
The session will address signs and symptoms of distress and effective ways of providing support for co-workers. The training also will include exercises to develop these skills.

• Understand the universality of mental health issues in the workplace
