Upcoming Exclusive Columbia University Webinar

Mental Health Awareness, hosted by Columbia University Benefits
Wednesday, May 24, 1 - 2 p.m.

  • Individuals suffering from behavioral health concerns often feel distant from friends and loved ones and can find it difficult to perform to their maximum productivity in the workplace. In fact, mental health issues are growing at a faster rate than any other kind of disability in today’s workplace. This situation is exacerbated by the stigma that still exists around mental disorders and the reluctance to discuss it openly at home or at work. In this webinar, participants will be encouraged to shatter popular myths and misconceptions about mental health and to increase their understanding of the causes and symptoms of mental disorders.

  • Fears and anxieties are made up of thoughts that are based upon either personal experiences or beliefs. Pretending that these fears and anxieties do not exist, or are not as bad as they seem, can make them worse. In this webinar, we will learn how to talk through our thoughts to realize that our fears and anxieties are manageable and controllable.
