Mental health impacts us all. Each of us has a role in supporting the mental health of those within our communities. In this workshop, Recognizing and Responding to a Person in Distress, we aim to give the University of Waterloo students the skills and confidence to support others (peers and colleagues) who may be in distress. We will focus on recognizing the signals of a person in distress, effectively responding with care and empathy and understand how to refer to resources within the community.
