Classes covering mental health, suicide prevention, anxiety, and basic mental health awareness will be held at the Parkview Meeting & Event Center, located in Nickelodeon Universe, and include our #B4Stage4 presentation at 12:30 p.m., featuring some our ambassadors who will be sharing their stories of recovery:
12:30 PM – B4Stage4: Changing the Way We Think About Mental Health: When we think about cancer, heart disease, or diabetes, we don’t wait years to treat them. We begin before Stage 4—We begin with prevention. So why don’t we do the same for mental health conditions? In this workshop, you’ll have an opportunity to hear people’s stories of their recovery, learn about how education, prevention, identification of symptoms and early treatment can help ensure that people living with mental health conditions get the help they need, and find out what you can do at each stage to help yourself or someone you care about move toward recovery.
