Mental Health: Moving Past the Taboo to a Culture of Acceptance
Mental health and mental illness, although commonly experienced, remain taboo topics. This discussion will present a general overview of mental health and mental ill-health. Additionally, participants will have a conversation about mental health stigma, what it causes, and how we can collectively move past it toward a culture that accepts and even celebrates efforts to sustain mental wellness and the contributions of those with mental health conditions.
NCPD is an exhibitor at CSMG 2023. We hope to see you there!
