LifeSpeak Marathon – 23 October 2019!

October 21, 2019 — Defence Stories

What does your mental health look like? For some, its finding time and space to quiet the mind and for others it’s moving the body through exercise. Regardless of what you need, the fact is that mental health looks different to each of us. LifeSpeak’s Fall Campaign will provide tips on how we can improve our mental health in 4 key areas; the body, mind, workplace and relationships.

Julie Charron, EAP Champion and ADM(RS) reminds us: “there are times we could all use extra advice, support, information or inspiration. October is Canada’s Healthy Workplace Month and I encourage all Defence Team members to take part in the LifeSpeak’s Mental Health Marathon, an all-day “Ask the Expert” event on 23 October 2019”

This Mental Health Marathon will feature several mental health experts with various areas of mental health expertise. Each session will last ninety minutes and address topics such as mood disorders, anxiety and stress, combating stigma, self-care and self-compassion, difficult emotions, mindfulness and so much more.
