Self-Care for Mental Health
Recognizing the importance of self-care and coping skills as part of suicide prevention, the Crisis Centre developed an interactive wellness workshop for teens!
This engaging, hands-on workshop encourages young people to consider different strategies for managing life’s ups and downs, and to create their own wellness toolkits. It includes experiential activities, videos, games and discussions.
Available at no cost. Delivered by trained volunteers. Donations welcome!
“I just wanted to take this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU for sharing your amazing presenters with our school. They helped to make our Mental Health Awareness event a great success. We look forward to future opportunities to have the Crisis Centre back to speak to more of our students.”
– School Counsellor, Burnaby
