“Always remember that for each person you see, you may be the only person in their life capable of both hearing and holding their pain. If that’s not sacred, I don’t know what is.”
Becoming a mental health champion is challenging; it demands self-awareness and honesty to transform our tendencies. It requires assessing our limitations and prioritizing self-care to cultivate a mental and emotional space that enables us to show up for others meaningfully. We are not simply listeners who offer mindless advice, but instead, we strive to establish a connection, avoid causing further harm, and create a safe environment for those seeking help. We need knowledge and competency to identify warning signs, communicate compassionately, and provide appropriate support. Through our training, we realized the difficulty of being a mental health champion, but ultimately, our desire to help and make a positive impact drives us forward.
We want to express our gratitude to our resource speaker, Alessandra Arpon, RPsy, for imparting her knowledge about mental health and counseling. Her guidance on utilizing mental health first aid tools and improving our verbal communication skills was invaluable. All the activities she prepared gave us an insight into how to assess, speak, and act like real mental health champions. Additionally, we would like to thank our participants for their enthusiastic involvement, which made the training interactive and more enjoyable. Your active participation is deeply appreciated!
