Wellbeing and mental health is a concern for everyone, regardless of race, status, class, and power. There are many positive steps being taking by businesses and local communities to break down the stigma and silence around mental health, but more needs to be done. Join us to hear and share personal stories.
Relationships can reduce stress and have been linked to overall improved health. Researchers have even shown that people with healthy social relationships have a 50 percent greater likelihood of survival.
But relationships are challenging – sometimes exhausting at best. People with poor relationships are more likely to suffer from depression, and loneliness is powerful enough to weaken our immune system.
