Candace Washington Speaking Topics

  • Understanding and Navigating Anxiety, Depression, Grief, Suicidal Ideation, and Trauma

    According to research, 1 in 5 people have a mental health disorder. Candace teaches people about common conditions like anxiety, depression, grief, suicide ideation, and trauma.

    Determining common illnesses' causes, symptoms, and valuable coping techniques helps promote a healthy lifestyle. It's crucial to encourage conversations about mental health conditions, normalize our feelings and thoughts, and be aware of the treatment and resources available to us, our employees, and our loved ones.

    This is because mental health conditions can cause significant disturbances in thinking, emotional regulation, or behavior'.

  • Mental Health and the Black Community

    Within BIPOC communities, receiving mental health services is stigmatized. To end the stigma associated with mental health and close the cultural gap around mental health, Candace is committed to promoting mental health dialogue as a psycho-educator.

    According to Mental Health of America, "Historical dehumanization, oppression, and violence against Black and African American people has evolved into present-day racism • structural, institutional, and individual – and cultivates a uniquely mistrustful and less affluent community experience, characterized by a myriad of disparities including inadequate access to and delivery of care in the health system".

    As a result, it is crucial to promote trust, mental health competency, and education about caring for our minds, bodies, and souls. Candace explores the interconnectedness of race, culture, and mental health in greater detail to normalize our humanity and encourage more within her community to receive support."

  • Let's Talk About Suicide

    According to Mental Health of America, "Suicide is the 12th leading cause of death." Suicidal thoughts and intrusive thoughts are two things that might happen while someone is going through a mental health crisis.

    Candace encourages discussions regarding the warning indicators of suicidality and recovery as a suicide survivor. She delves deeply into the behavioral, emotional, and psychological changes associated with suicidal ideation.

    Candace looks at healthy coping strategies and how to provide support and tools to those of us who love someone struggling with negative thoughts, hopelessness, or worthlessness.

  • Establishing Workplace Mental Health Competency

    We spend a significant amount of time at work. Although you might enjoy your job, others might find it lessens their level of life satisfaction. This talk encourages businesses to prioritize workplace emotional and mental wellness efforts to foster an exceptional work-life balance.

    Additionally, this talk encourages workers to put their wellness first by implementing self-care routines that aid in emotional control and decompression.

    The Society for Human Resource Management says, "Many employers are enhancing emotional and mental health benefits". Implementing mental health measures promotes productivity, retention, and humanization.

  • Bridging the Gap Between Spirituality and Mental Health

    The National Alliance on Mental Illnesses (NAMI) claims that "Both religion and spirituality can have a positive impact on mental health". Both religion and spirituality can help a person tolerate stress by generating peace, purpose, and forgiveness. It is expected that when one connects with a higher power during difficult or depressing times, one will gain wisdom and courage.

    Historically, religious practices across generations have shown a stigma associated with mental health. However, in these forward-thinking times, there are more conversations about the intersection of spirituality and mental health, encouraging education and normalizing one's human experiences when seeking mental health services.

    Bridging the Gap Between Spirituality and Mental Health explores the value of utilizing your faith and core beliefs to handle unexpected events in life. Furthermore, examining how effectively integrating one's faith with receiving mental health care produces the best outcomes.
