Healthy Boiler virtual workshop to discuss strategies to build self-esteem
SupportLinc, provider of behavioral health services for Purdue’s West Lafayette campus, is presenting a virtual Healthy Boiler workshop on Feb. 1 titled “Building Positive Self-Esteem: Strategies for Success.” The workshop, which supports the behavioral health pillar of the Healthy Boiler Program, is being offered at three times throughout the day to meet the diverse needs of potential attendees.
From time to time, everyone faces circumstances that make it hard to feel good about themselves. When people are under extreme stress, are sick or are having a difficult time at home or work, it is easy to be drawn into a downward spiral of lower and lower self-esteem. The workshop is designed to provide participants with ideas and practical strategies that they can begin using immediately to increase self-esteem and begin to feel better about themselves.
On Feb. 1, the workshop is available at the following times:
Those interested in attending should register by Jan. 31.
