The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is an international public health emergency that poses a serious challenge to our physical and psychological resilience. This pandemic affects how we live and how we die. It impacts our physical, mental, and emotional well-being, changes the way we love and care for ourselves and others, and influences how we work play and grieve. Psychosocial Therapist and Grief Counsellor, Yvonne Clark will be joining us for a practical discussion on mental health, grief and life losses and how we can cope during the Covid crisis.

With psychologist, David Martin
Caregivers notoriously put the needs of others before their own. This can have detrimental effects on both physical and mental health. Add a pandemic to the mix and chances are you could use a little TLC and advice from professionals on how to take better care of yourself right now.

Plan to join us for a 3-part summer online series entitled Taking Care of ME! The first two sessions will be offered twice (10 am and at 7 pm). You’re welcome to attend all three or just a few.

Registration is necessary to obtain login information.

The Wellness Centre is offering a series of four art therapy sessions this fall for caregivers who have lost a loved one. Art therapist, Sophie Lessard-Latendresse will guide participants as they process and release emotions related to their individual losses while encouraging them to make sense of their feelings. These art therapy sessions will provide a safe place to honor and remember lost loved ones. It can help guide grieving caregivers towards transformation as they allow themselves time to process the significance of this journey.

Please understand that you do not need to have any artistic skills to participate in these sessions and this is not an art class. The actual art making process is more important than the art produced. These sessions provide an opportunity to express emotions on a page, canvas or in a clay sculpture. Participants find relief within the art making experience. All the necessary materials will be provided and safely delivered to your door free-of-charge.
Sessions will be offered virtually. You can access them on your phone, tablet, ipad, latop or computer with webcam. If you need technical assistance, we are here to support you. Group confidentiality is a vital aspect of this process and all participants will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement upon registration.
