Workshop Evaluation

100% of participants felt the event created awareness of mental health issues
90% of participants made a meaningful connection with other people
90% of participants gained new tools to support their own wellness
My key takeaway was there is no right or wrong way to grieve and no set timeline. Just because you “get better” and then see something that makes you sad again doesn’t mean you didn’t grieve correctly. "
