How to Resolve Conflicts Involving Mental Health


One in five adults each year are coping with a diagnosable mental health problem. Even if our problems don't escalate to diagnoses, we all know what it's like to have a bad day. How do we have effective communication when we're impacted by mental health issues, or just trying to talk about them? Dan Berstein, a mediator with bipolar disorder and an expert in mental health communication, will share insights to help you have empowering mental health conversations.
