Below are some of the workshops that CWGHR has held in the recent past.
How to Work with Depressed Clients Living with Episodic Disabilities.
Positive Outlook provided valuable tools for front-line health and social service professionals who meet directly with clients and feel that depression is limiting the client's quality of life. It was a mental health workshop for front-line service providers who are not mental health specialists. The workshop was best suited for:
- Case Managers
- Health Promoters
- Intake/Discharge Workers
- Personal Support Workers
- Home Care Providers
- Rehabilitation Service Providers
Positive Outlook used practical real-life scenarios to encourage problem-solving around how best to approach and understand difficult mental health-related issues. It provided the tools necessary to ease the burden of depression on both client and professional alike.
