Young adulthood is an important transitional period in life during which major changes occur impacting the future, career, socio-economic security, health, and wellbeing. This is the time when individuals start experiencing significant life challenges, including common mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression. Due to the stigma associated with mental illness, young people often wait to seek treatment until symptoms become severe and do not receive proper care due to limited resources. This can cause symptoms to escalate further, making treatment more difficult and costly.
Join this workshop to learn new concepts and gain experiential and behavioural tools to help you develop a resilient mind, while improving coping mechanisms to manage daily challenges of student life. Based on the integral health paradigm of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing, this workshop will provide practical education about the conditions required for sustained mental health. You will learn about the nature of the mind, key aspects of anxiety and depression, how to perceive the world in an integrated way, accessing a relaxed and natural state of being, developing a healthy ego and higher states of consciousness, and ways to feel supported by the world instead of being overwhelmed by it.
The workshop includes:
