Behavioral Health Care (Do Not Delete)

Sept. 29 Webinar - Stand Up to Stigma

Breaking the Silence, Changing the Conversation

When it comes to mental health, silence can be deadly.

Stigma may keep you from seeking help, and the silence that surrounds mental health can make it harder to find support. And if you’re a teen, it can be even harder to talk about what’s going on inside your head.

This September, we’re breaking the silence surrounding mental health and teaching the community how to “stand up to stigma.”

The free, live webinar features a panel of behavioral health experts from Willowbrooke at Tanner and Carroll County Schools, who will discuss how to:
  • Identify the signs and symptoms of mental illness.
  • Start the conversation about mental health.
  • Access mental health resources in your community.
  • Reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness.

The live webinar features a question-and-answer session with the panel, enabling teachers, parents, guardians and others to ask questions. Registration is required, so sign up today.

Breaking the Silence, Changing the Conversation

Talking about mental health can be tough. But the silence surrounding mental health can make it harder to find support, especially if you're a teen. Learn how to start the conversation from a panel of behavioral health experts from Willowbrooke at Tanner and Carroll County Schools.

For immediate help, call Willowbrooke at Tanner’s 24-hour help line at 770-812-9551.
