MNBC’s Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions is excited to share that our registration request to participate in FREE cohorts of the Canadian Mental Health Association’s program, Living Life to the Full, is now live! Sessions will be delivered by certified Métis community facilitators and include a booklet, handouts and exercises to guide your learning. These courses will be delivered virtually over Zoom. Each course will have up to 15 Métis participants.
Living Life to the Full is an eight-week, group based mental health promotion course. Living Life to the Full helps people make a difference to their lives in eight enjoyable 90-minute sessions – taking place at the same time, once per week. Course content and materials are practical and easily applied to everyday life situations. These sessions will be for Métis adults (18+) dealing with stress, anxiety or just needing help in dealing with life’s challenges. Please note that Living Life to the Full is not delivered by psychiatrists or psychologists, and is not intended to be medical or therapeutic intervention.
We will be running a number of cohorts at differing times. Session cohorts offered:
- Saturdays at 1PM beginning March 13th
- Mondays at 4PM beginning March 15th
- Thursdays at 5PM beginning March 18th
- Saturdays at 9:30AM beginning March 20th
- Tuesdays at 6:30PM beginning March 23rd
Métis adults interested in participating in this program can complete a survey to request registration in MNBC’s Living Life to the Full courses. The survey can be completed at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7888RB3
Please note that completing this survey does not guarantee registration. Due to overwhelming interest and limited capacity, not everyone who completes this survey may be offered a spot. Participants will receive a confirmation email to confirm registration, if eligible.
This is part of a larger pilot project that MNBC’s Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions is working on, in partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association. Following the completion of this series of courses, we will be working to develop a Métis-focused adaptation of the Living Life to the Full Program. Participants of this program will have the optional opportunity to share their learnings with MNBC and CMHA, to support our Métis adaptation of this course.
