Mental Health Brown Bag Workshop Series

Helping Those Who are Struggling

When those around us are struggling with their mental health, it can be difficult to know what to say or how to help. Join us to discuss how to approach conversations about mental health and ways you can provide support.

Embracing Adversity

Adversity is an essential part of the human experience. Culturally, we are encouraged to avoid failure, loss, grief, or distress. We want our lives to be seamless and without challenge.  Through the process of struggling, we acquire knowledge and skills that allow us to function at higher levels. In this discussion, we will gain an understanding of our strengths, as well as those areas of life which need improvement, leading to personal growth. By managing personal adversity, we develop tools and techniques to manage future challenges effectively.

When a Diet Stops Being a Diet

In this workshop, we will explore the start of and prevalence of diet culture, the difference between disordered eating and an eating disorder, and knowing the common risk factors for developing an eating disorder.
