Wellness in the Woods-Reject Stigma Workshop Wednesdays

May 19 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until May 27, 2021

Together we can reject and overcome stigma. Stigma comes in many
forms; self-stigma, public-stigma, or structural stigma to name a few.
For those of us living with or serving someone living with mental
illness, we know how devastating stigma can be. We believe that
awareness and education are the first steps to overcoming stigma and
that is what we intend to do with special sessions on our Virtual Peer
Support Network. We have a way for everyone to get involved.

Get involved by learning how to navigate civil engagement and
advocacy with Melissa Hensley, Associate Professor of Social Work at
Augsburg University and a person living with bipolar disorder.
