Financed by the Scotiabank Resiliency Grant from the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia, CMHA NS Division Education and Awareness Program Lead Elizabeth Baker says the sessions are designed to offer tips and techniques to help participants assess and build their resilience level.
“Resilience won’t make your problems go away — but it can give you the ability to see past them, find enjoyment in life and better handle stress,” said Baker.
“If you aren’t as resilient as you’d like to be, this workshop can help you develop skills to help protect you from various mental health conditions, such as depression and anxiety, offset factors that increase the risk of mental health conditions and improve your coping ability.”
Baker adds that the workshop is offered over two 3-hour sessions and recommends attending both sessions to get the full benefit of the the workshop.
