DNExTalks: "The Mental Fitness Project" and Mental Health Workshop
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Online via Zoom
De Anza Associated Student Government Diversity and Events Committee and De Anza Active Minds present DNExTalks: “The Mental Fitness Project” followed by a mental health workshop with guest speaker Josh Rivedal.
Please RSVP in advance to attend.
The event will have two parts: a talk with Josh Rivedal followed by a mental health workshop.
In the hour-long talk, author and college mental health specialist Josh Rivedal will talk about his college days in a format that’s visceral and creates an emotional connection between students and the powerful message that it’s okay to talk about mental health and that it’s possible to live mentally well in college and beyond.
Josh will cover: what mental health is and is not, coping skills, what depression and anxiety are and how we can cope with either or both, how to reframe failure, how to help oneself or a friend if in a mental health breakdown, and finding and cultivating hope during difficult times.
More information regarding the speaker can be found at http://www.joshuarivedal.com/.
The following one-hour workshop will cover activities and exercises implementing what is covered during Josh's talk as well as tools for us to support ourselves and our loved ones during mental health emergencies.
