Many factors in our lives affect mental wellness. At WCHC we support those who are struggling with mental health issues and those who are supporting them by offering a range of programs.
Mental Wellness Education Sessions
Offered in partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association to increase awareness of mental health and to support those affected by mental health issues.Â The community advisory committee meets regularly to review program evaluations and to identify topics for the upcoming sessions.
As we continue to take physical distancing measures, Woolwich Community Health Centre is offering mental wellness education sessions at a distance using the virtual communication platform, Zoom. All sessions are FREE. Registration is required. Once you have registered, you will receive your invitation a day before the presentation. If you do not have internet access, no worries, you can attend the program using your telephone.

Creative Art Program – Sorry, all classes are FULL
We are happy to announce that the Creative Art Program for adults will continue into the spring this year! The classes will be offered for free again thanks to the grant WCHC received from the Lyle S. Hallman Foundation.
People do not have to be “artists” or even “good at art” to benefit from the physical act of creating art.
Art has been proven to encourage healing, motivation, expression of emotions and most importantly happiness, to people worldwide, regardless of their age, health, ability or environment. By offering a Creative Art Program here at WCHC we can provide an outlet, a place to escape the stress of everyday life and just a fun time out for people in our community.
This will be an in-person program at Woolwich Community Health Centre, 10 Parkside Drive, St. Jacobs. Registration is required. We are limiting class sizes in accordance with COVID guidelines. Participants must provide proof of double vaccination against COVID-19 for at least 14 days. Attendees must also wear face masks and follow physical distancing guidelines. These classes are for adults.
