FAITH-FULLNESS: SPIRITUALITY and MENTAL HEALTH
• Cost: Free
• Stigma around mental health issues persist in our society. Unfortunately, those who have been raised in, or value their own faith tradition, often face additional challenges understanding mental health. Struggles emerge in reconciling messages from society with personal understanding, experience, and expression of faith. This interactive presentation seeks to explore the connection, dispel some myths, and learn an integrated approach to faith and mental health.
Presented by Cairine Domzella, MA Theology: Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy, WCHC and Sid Bater, MSW Counsellor at WCHC.
Thursday, November 16   • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM     at 10 Parkside Dr., St. Jacobs
CALMING the ANXIOUS MIND
• Cost: Free
• Anxiety is one of the most common and most distressing mental challenges today, it can be particularly troubling when our children struggle with it. In March we explored some of the causes of anxiety in children, now we will explore how anxiety is often a 'family affair', how family fit into the picture, and discuss some of basic strategies to effectively manage the anxiety relationship in the household.
Presented by Sid Bater, MSW Counsellor at WCHC.
