Mental Health First Aid

June 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

It is estimated that 1in 5 Americans will experience a diagnosable mental disorder in any given year. The impacts of this are far reaching when you consider how that could also affect family, friends and colleagues. Given the prevalence of mental health issues (which are likely only compounded by the events of the last 15months) The Office of Employee Development and Wellness will be offering a workshop designed to not only reduce the stigma surrounding mental health, but also give the participants resources to support those who may be struggling.

During this 90 minute workshop participants will learn how to:
  • Assess for risk
  • Listen non-judgmentally
  • Give reassurance and information
  • Encourage appropriate professional help
  • Encourage self-help

Audience: Harvard staff, faculty, and post docs
