Carolina Mental Health Seminar: Understanding Emotions and How to Talk About Them

November 1, 2022

Better understand your feelings, and learn strategies to explore and communicate about them.  

Emotions are necessary for problem-solving, motivation, and goal-directed behavior, and help us relate to other people. Identifying, exploring, and discussing emotions – how they make us feel, think, and behave – can help us gain perspective, increase a sense of control, and minimize the impact of stress.

On November 16th from 12pm - 1:30 pm we gathered to better understand your feelings, and learn strategies to explore and communicate about them.
