IT is no surprise that the pandemic has affected our nation’s mental health, and with a mental health system in place that isn’t resourced to deal with a crisis, we need to do everything we can to support the people struggling.
Mental Health Service Provider, MyMind, is hosting a free live webinar in collaboration with Pieta House this week which will explore the important topic of suicide.
Know Suicide, Know the Signs is set to debunk some of the myths that exist around suicide, explore the issues around suicide and provide some practical pointers on learning the signs and being able to provide support to someone who is potentially struggling with suicidal thoughts.
This event is in response to the reported increase in depression and anxiety due to the Covid-19 pandemic. MyMind is currently providing free online counselling services to people who have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic whether it’s through bereavement, job loss, increased anxiety or depression, or addiction.
The Webinar takes place on Thursday, June 17 at 11 am. This is a free public event and you can register here: https://www.eventbrite.
