When asked to define the word “identity,” many think of their name or their job title. But identity is so much more than that—it is the sum of gender, sexuality, culture, ethnicity, and more. How we choose to identify ourselves can affect more than our driver’s licenses, LinkedIn accounts, or social circles—it can impact our mental health.
In a presentation on Wednesday, August 5, 2020, Dr. Chase Anderson shared how identity applies to mental health and how we can encourage and support others in discovering their identities. He also answered audience questions on this topic.
Watch on demand. The webinar is available with English captions and subtitles in Spanish.
