Loneliness & Isolation
Monday, Octoberber 4, 2:00p.m.-3:00p.m.
Prior to COVID-19, Americans were already dealing with an epidemic of loneliness. The pandemic has exacerbated an already problematic issue and made addressing it a priority for college students. This session will discuss the challenges of loneliness and practical steps to assist the DMACC student body.
Innovation in Men's Mental Health: Using Humor, Media, and Digital Engagement to Promote Mental Health and Prevent Suicide
Tuesday, November 9, 10:00a.m.-11:00a.m.
Men often do not seek mental health services or disclose suicidal thoughts for many reasons including fear of discrimination and prejudice, internalized stigmatized beliefs and misinformation. This workshop will describe an innovative, award-winning, multi-media mental health program called ‘Man Therapy’ that uses humor and digital formats to engage men to think differently about their mental health.
Dealing with Grief (non-death)
Monday, November 15, 2:00p.m.-3:00p.m.
When we think about grief and loss, we usually think about the death of someone. However, there are many other types of losses (loss of a job, a relationship, etc.) We also experienced many types of losses with the COVID pandemic (loss of social support, etc.) This workshop will discuss some of other types of losses and healthy coping mechanisms.
Friday, December 3, 10:10a.m.-11:10a.m.
Relationships are a cornerstone of the human experience. Whether they are romantic or based on friendship, they are a basic human need. While it is important to understand what an unhealthy relationship is, it can be harder to define the characteristics of a healthy one. We will explore both sides and push the social stereotypes between men and women.
