Mental Health Month Webinars

May 12, 2020

While 1 in 5 people will experience a mental illness during their lifetime, everyone faces challenges in life that can impact their mental health. The good news is there are practical tools that everyone can use to improve their mental health and increase resiliency - and there are ways that everyone can be supportive of friends, family, and co-workers who are struggling with life’s challenges or with their own mental health.

This May is Mental Health Month and Moses Taylor Foundation has partnered with Lackawanna County and the Lackawanna County System of Care, Scranton Area Community Foundation and its Center for Community Leadership and Nonprofit Excellent, and the United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties to offer a series of webinars highlighting what you can do daily to prioritize your mental health, build resiliency in the face of trauma and obstacles, and support those around you who may be struggling.

SUICIDE AWARENESS AND PREVENTION IN THE WORKPLACE
You think someone on your team may be struggling – but what do you do? As a public speaker, Joe Hopfer’s focus on suicide awareness and prevention stems from his inspiring story as a survivor of loss, losing his 15-year-old son, James, who took his own life in 2010. Join Joe as he discusses signs a person might be suicidal; what to do if you suspect someone at work is thinking about hurting themselves; how to approach, talk with, and support someone who may be suicidal; and how to cope if a coworker or one of their family members takes their own life. Click here to register.
