Mental Health Skills Training


Our team includes registered social workers who practice community social work. We offer a range of mental health workshops to support student wellbeing. Support your community by gaining helping skills. If we work together, we have the capacity to support each other. Our training sessions help build community, decrease loneliness, and build capacity to help ourselves and each other.
