Date and Time


Virtual - event link will be shared closer to the session date


Are you considering reaching out for mental health support and just don't know where to start? Many others might be feeling the same way! Starting therapy to support your mental health can be a very scary experience, especially if you've never done it before and don't know what to expect or who to get support from. It takes strength and vulnerability to begin the journey and reach out for support. 

In this webinar we will: 

  • Discuss what psychotherapy is and who can provide it
  • The difference between a psychiatrist, psychologist, psychotherapist and social worker
  • How to find a therapist
  • What to expect from the process
  • Answer participant questions

You will not be asked to disclose any personal information about mental health during this session. 

Register now! You can submit any questions you may have regarding psychotherapy in the registration form.
