JHEAP webinar series: Mental Health Awareness Month

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and while society is getting more comfortable discussing mental health, it can still be hard to know where to start when it comes to taking care of your own well-being. Join JHEAP for a series of webinars during the month of May so you know where to turn regardless of the situations you're dealing with.

You may register for any or all of the webinars this month:

  • Tools for Today, 3 p.m. on Friday, May 10: Looking for ways to prioritize your mental and physical health? In this session, participants will learn self-care best practices and gain tools for personal fulfillment including mindfulness, healthy eating, sleep routines, socialization, and more.

  • Setting Boundaries, 1 p.m. on Tuesday, May 14: In today's "always-on" environment, setting respectful boundaries is crucial to being successful and avoiding becoming overwhelmed. In this session, participants will learn practices for delegating, managing expectations, and staying consistent to achieve the personal and professional balance they desire.

  • Practicing Self-Compassion, noon on Wednesday, May 22: It isn't always easy to show ourselves the same compassion we show others, but research has found that self-compassion helps us be less self-critical, which in turn decreases stress, increases resiliency, and improves life satisfaction. In this session, participants will learn the components of self-compassion and gain tools for turning their inner critic into an inner friend.
