Mental Health and Stigma

  • : Online
Lecture Overview

Mental illness is a complex and, at times, unpredictable health issue. With a public hungry for more information, how do we look behind the numbers and examine the real effects of mental illness on the individual? This eye-opening presentation from mental health clinician, Geoff Ahern, includes a look at mental health stigma, shame, and embarrassment, and what happens when mental health work goes beyond the professional and enters our personal life.

Educators Geoffrey Ahern

Geoffrey Ahern is a senior mental health clinician and educator who splits his time between working with people in a mental health crisis in the ED setting and working proactively to educate other health professionals and the community about how to better understand mental health problems, as well as substance use and addiction. Over the years, he has gained extensive experience in emergency and trauma, rural nursing, alcohol and other drug counselling, and psychiatric nursing across both the public and private sectors. He holds a masters of health science (mental health and addiction). Geoff is particularly fascinated by the impact that exercise, nutrition, community, meaning and purpose, and practices like yoga have on a person’s mental health, as well as living a simple life of reflection, contentment and wonderment. See Educator Profile
