Becoming Brave gradsThinking about telling your workplace colleagues about your diagnosis? Nervous about telling a friend about your anxiety? Worried what your family might say if they knew you've been diagnosed with bipolar or another mental health condition?

Take control of your mental health story by attending Stand Against Stigma's free, peer-led Becoming Brave training. Lunch is provided. Download the Becoming Brave flyer.

When: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3

Where: Boggs Building, 2420 Breslauer Way, Redding

Based on a national curriculum, this one-day training will cover three primary goals: 

1. Evaluating the costs and benefits of disclosing personal experience with mental health conditions. 

2. Developing strategies for safer disclosing. 

3. Crafting one's story into a meaningful message. 

The training is tailored to fit each individual and help them answer the questions they have about disclosure. While this training is a good first step for people interested in sharing their story publicly, it is open and helpful for anyone.

PLEASE RSVP BY OCTOBER 26th.

Lunch is provided, and space is limited. Contact Carrie Jo at cdiamond@co.shasta.ca.us or 229-8484 to RSVP.
