Workshop Evaluation

Click here to download a summary of the post-workshop evaluations.
93% of attendees felt the event created awareness of mental health issues
93% 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
[My main takeaway is] “That mental illness can be perceived or affect each person differently. It also solidified the importance of mental wellness activities to provide support and that when you wade past the stigmas, real help can be achieved. There are so many services available. "
