Booking a Live V-A-R® Presentation

V-A-R®, Validate-Appreciate-Refer, is Active Minds’ everyday tool for everyday conversations. It’s about showing up for one another every day in meaningful ways.

Validate, Appreciate, Refer® are three easy-to-use steps that provide a path to listening and responding in a helpful way.

A conversation with you could make all the difference and prevent a crisis from developing later.

With V-A-R, Active Minds lets everyone know that someone doesn’t need to be in a crisis to seek help; you don’t have to be an expert to provide help; and help can come in many different forms. Being there for someone in a moment of need is what it’s all about.

What a Live Training will bring your community:

  1. Understand the meaning and usage of the V-A-R tool.
  2. Identify at least three “barriers” we may have in place that may impede our willingness to engage with someone about their struggles.
  3. Explore circumstances that may impact mental wellness among our peers, colleagues, students, employees, family, and friends.
  4. Engage with current trends in mental health, based on recent data.
  5. Discuss the value and importance of self-care as a critical component of mental health.
