The goal of this webinar is to reduce stigmatizing attitudes and beliefs by promoting a comprehensive understanding of mental health, the importance of self-care and treatment-seeking behaviors, and hope for recovery.
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 the quality of life. Education and early intervention promotes wellness.
