Name it, Don’t Numb It

Good mental health is not about being happy all the time. In fact, a mentally healthy life includes the full range of human emotions – even the uncomfortable ones like sadness, fear, and anger. Even if we try to push our difficult feelings down, they do not go away. This course will explore the mental health benefits of identifying our emotions and sharing our feelings with others. Emotional self-regulation, the ability to label and shape your emotions will be presented as an effective mental health strategy. This course will be offered during Mental Health Week in recognition of the CMHA commitment of “Mental Health for All”. Once you have completed the registration process on our website, you will receive a link to this online course. (1 ½ hours in length)

Embracing Radical Acceptance

Are you struggling with regret or frustration with things you cannot control? Radical acceptance is when you accept things the way they are without resistance. Instead of fighting reality, you are accepting reality by letting things go. When you practice radical acceptance, you accept things when they do not go your way, making it easier to break a cycle contributing to emotional struggles. Tune in to this online course to learn how to bring acceptance into your life and feel peace. (2 hours in length)

Date: Thursday, May 6th from 1:00pm-3:00pm

Location: Online Via Zoom
