Wellness Wednesdays: Mental and Emotional Health
Self-Care Strategies for Mental and Emotional Health
Interested in finding simple yet impactful ways to weave wellness into your professional and personal life? If so, please join faculty and staff colleagues for Wellness Wednesdays the first Wednesday of each month (September to June). Each session offers information, resources, and/or immersion into different wellness modalities that are supported at UMBC.
Do you feel perpetually stressed and overwhelmed by the challenges of work and life? Are you concerned about the emotional and mental well being of others? In this important conversation, Dr. Whitney Hobson from the UCS Counseling Center will discuss what constitutes mental health and signs and symptoms of mental health distress, the difference between stress and burnout, and self-care strategies that help one stay well. Additional resources to be shared: depression screening, campus NAMI resources, and information about our online training program for faculty, staff, and students, Kognito.
Space is limited and registration is required. Registration deadline is Friday, April 28th. Register at http://my.umbc.edu/groups/training/events/45618.
