Workshop Evaluation

Click here to download a summary of the post-workshop evaluations.
99% of attendees felt the event created awareness of mental health issues
99% said that the workshop helped them confront and address stigma related to mental illness
86% of those not already receiving support reported an increased likelihood to reach out for help
My main take away was that even though I have received help from my therapist there are many people who have a hard time taking that first step of seeking help. As a community we need to help others by providing our resources and our own advice and thoughts to help them. "
