A practical and informative seminar for anyone interested in learning more about anxiety and depression.

What is it?
There are two versions, the online/asynchronous version, which is a self-paced Canvas course, and the live/synchronous version, which is a live seminar where students will also have a opportunity to ask questions and chat.
- Learn about the wide range of symptoms of anxiety and depression
- Understand the symptoms of anxiety and depression and maintaining factors that can perpetuate these symptoms
- Learn strategies to manage and help reduce symptoms
- Have access to information about resources for those wanting further help or support
Through Canvas, you will be able to access a copy of the seminar slides and resources. These resources are available until the end of term, so feel free to print the ones you are interested in keeping. Additionally, you can share your feedback about the event in the "Quiz" section of Canvas.
