Mental Health and Wellness 101 helps participants to understand mental health in a holistic context and utilize basic mental health awareness in order to self-care and help others.
Mental Health and Wellness 101 participants will:
– Increase basic knowledge of mental health to help reduce stigma.
– Understand Mental Health as a continuum of wellness that defines us every day — it is illness, recovery, and all of the space in between.
– Promote wellness, treatment seeking behavior, recovery, and self-care. 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 quality of life.
