With Lynn McLaughlin

Best-Selling and Award-Winning Author, Owner/Founder of Lynn McLaughlin Co

It is hard to know when it becomes time to intervene in someone else’s life and suggest mental health and/or addiction treatment. The lead up to the conversation can be anxiety-ridden and awkward, but it doesn’t have to be! Circumstances vary for every individual, but approaching a loved one with an open mind and a caring heart is a great place to start.  Join Lynn McLaughlin, best-selling and award-winning author, as she provides perspectives from personal experience on how to help a loved one seek treatment. We will identify when it is indeed time to intervene and suggest professional support, how this impacts the family dynamic, and what the possible outcomes are, both good and bad, from initiating that difficult conversation.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Explore the ways in which you can approach someone about their mental health and/or substance use
  • Understand that there may be a multitude of responses to initiating this type of conversation
  • Recognize the importance of seeking out programs that best suit an individual’s needs
