Mental Health Pop-Up Session: "What is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder?"

July 11, 2024

Taking care of your mental health is as important as taking care of your physical health. This summer BALANCE is pleased to provide a special series of online mental health support pop-up sessions. Open to all persons living with a visual disability, these workshops provide a safe, welcoming space to explore effective strategies for managing stress, anxiety, and other mental health challenges.

Title: What is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder?

This educational workshop will provide an overview on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and outline various coping strategies. Delivered by Social Worker and BALANCE Counsellor Melanie Marsden, the objective of this workshop is to leave attendees feeling empowered with a strong understanding of how PTSD impacts and interacts with their visual impairment, so that they can better advocate for their service needs. Identifying triggers is a key step in building awareness and determining the ways in which one may need support.
