Description:

Are you concerned about a friend, family member, or colleague who is struggling and wish you knew what to do and say to help them?

In the workshop, you will learn how to recognize the symptoms of sadness and depression, how to engage with a person you care about, and discuss ways to get them further help. This program is interactive and you will get to practice techniques.

During your lifetime, you will interact with folks that experience loss, sadness, or depression. This workshop can help you understand and intervene in those situations, even though it is not designed to teach you how to treat the persons loss or sadness.
