Emotions are a part of life. How do you respond to them? As part of Mental Health Month, Dr Jo Lane will talk about strategies that can increase emotional agility by holding emotions loosely, facing them, and living a values-driven life.
Mental Health Month is an annual event celebrated in over 100 countries to raise community awareness and understanding of mental illness, reduce the stigma and discrimination associated with mental illness, and promote positive mental health and wellbeing.
