Wednesday, June 16, 2021, 12:00 to 1:00 pm ET – Social Media and Mental Health (featuring Nick Petrella)
This week we will be discussing the positive and negative impact of social media on mental health. Humans are social beings, and we need the companionship of others to survive and thrive. As a result, the strength of our social connections can significantly impact our mental wellbeing. In the digital age, and specifically during the global pandemic, there is a collective reliance on technology and social media to help stay connected with family, friends and colleagues. However, excessive use of social media and reliance on devices can contribute to negative impacts on our mental health.

Open and honest conversations about mental health and mental illness are crucial to the well-being of all Canadians. However, we know that this year has looked much different than a lot of us could have ever expected. With the presence of the COVID-19 pandemic, now more than ever we know that we need to find new, and different ways to maintain a state of positive well-being for ourselves and our loved ones.
This free and virtual webinars will be co-hosted by Nick Petrella, a Community and National advocate in Mental Health and Wellness. In 2010 Nick was diagnosed with severe depression and anxiety so knows all too well about how these small and simple acts can have a profound impact on someone’s recovery. Nick is a former recipient of St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton Spirit of Hope Award and is currently a Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health 2020-2021 Face of Mental Illness. Nick’s ability to share openly and authentically is what he is best known for, and the opportunity to join him in conversation will be one you do not want to miss!
