About Event

The Purpose 

Let’s be honest. It can be challenging to talk about mental health with your clients. You’ve probably wondered, “What if I say the wrong thing? What if I don’t know what to say at all? And who am I to ask about their mental health, anyway?” We get it. 

On the flip side, with rising cases of anxiety, depression, loneliness, and other mental health challenges, there is a need for healthcare providers to feel more comfortable when mental health comes up in conversation. It starts with simply knowing how to effectively open and engage in a dialogue about mental health that puts your client’s needs first. 

When clients mentally thrive, we know they do better in all aspects of their lives, including in treatment with you. So, let’s work together to ensure your clients get the best care possible while feeling confident that their mental health needs are addressed. 

The Concept 

The goal of this 1-hour webinar is to equip and empower attendees to have meaningful conversations about mental health with their clients. We’ll do this by sharing what to look out for, how to start and steer a conversation, and how to recommend external support to a client — all while maintaining your own boundaries. 

This session is hosted by Shift Collab, Canada’s leading female and clinician-owned mental health therapy practice, specifically for healthcare providers, including physicians, dietitians, physiotherapists, chiropractors, massage therapists and more. All health professionals, including support and administrative professionals, who are involved with the delivery of healthcare, are welcome to join!
