The SPH Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Team (EDIT) invites all Students, Faculty and Staff to join us for an open dialogue around these topics, to help build an open space within the SPH community to bring questions and concerns. For this session, in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we will watch a brief talk on Ted.com by Bill Bernat, “How to Connect with Depressed Friends,” during the first fifteen minutes, and spend the rest of the hour discussing this topic.
Want to connect with a depressed friend but not sure how to relate to them? Comedian and storyteller Bill Bernat has a few suggestions. Learn some dos and don’ts for talking to people living with depression — and handle your next conversation with grace and maybe a bit of humor. Information about available UMN campus resources will be available during this session.
Feel free to bring your lunch! Microwave and beverages are available.
