Workshop Evaluation

97% of attendees felt the event created awareness of mental health issues
100% said that the workshop helped them confront and address stigma related to mental illness
71% of those not already receiving support reported an increased likelihood to reach out for help
It was so well run and had a thoughtful discourse, probably the best mental health seminar I have been part of. More schools and companies should follow lead, rather than just stating “mental health matters”. "
