Lifewise EAP Webinar: Faces of Mental Health

As an employee, you are our most important resource, and the University of Missouri System cares about your personal and professional well-being.

The UM System’s Total Rewards, UMKC Human Resources, and Saint Luke’s Health System in Kansas City have come together to provide monthly online Employee Assistance Program seminars to equip you with skills to help you excel and grow in your professional or personal life. On September 26, 2018, the topic for the EAP Online Seminar Series is the Many Faces of Mental Health.

Description: One in five adults experiences a mental health condition every year. Given that statistic, you would think we would be less judgmental and accepting of someone with a mental illness. Yet, being diagnosed with a mental health condition can be stigmatizing still. In this seminar, we will review what impacts ones mental health, signs and symptoms and what you can do if you or someone you know may be symptomatic. Being stigmatized can prevent those who need support and resources not seek the help they need. This seminar will discuss what you can do to help de-stigmatizing mental health and illness, how to recognize if someone may need help and how to have the right supportive attitude.

The monthly webinars are approximately an hour in length and are conducted live at 11AM and 2PM on the scheduled day, but, even if you are unable to view the webinars live you can listen to the recordings at a later date.
