Enhance your maternal mental health literacy at this online event
Often you are the first point of contact for a mother struggling with their mental health.
This newly updated workshop hosted by the BC Council for Families will enhance your mental health literacy, provide a guide for the promotion of mental wellness for mothers, and promote practices that build resiliency and a strong network of community supports.
The valuable toolkit is a workbook-style resource that will increase maternal mental health knowledge, skills, and confidence among those working with mothers and families.
This toolkit and workshop will:
-enhance your mental health literacy,
-provide you with a guide for promoting mental wellness for mothers,
-teach tools and techniques to help you prevent mental health issues,
-help you recognize the risks and signs of possible mental illness,
-help you guide women and their families—and other people supporting them—to understand and access assessment and treatment services, and
-enhance your knowledge of community responses and support that encourage recovery and decrease stigma.
