bvi webinar july 15th

We kindly invite you to participate in the webinar "Effective Communication" on Thursday, July 15th, at 2:00 pm (AST) as part of the MHPSS/COVID-19 webinar series, organized by the Government of the Virgin Islands and the Mental Health Unit at the Department of Noncommunicable Diseases and Mental Health of the Pan American Health Organization. 

Communicating is the one activity we spend the most time doing. However, it is not always the most pleasurable. For many of us, it can frustrate and can often lead to conflicts even while on the job. One must remember that communication is an important social skill for an individual to survive in the world.
