Weaving Webs of Connection: a workshop on community support
06:00 PM
Leaves House (Mcgill)

Are you interested in learning about community and how to connect with others? Are you looking to learn what it’s like to offer support, and what it’s like to ask for it? ❤️

Join Vent Over Tea as we explore community, connection, and support through a participatory workshop with facilitators Meaghen Buckley and David Robinson 🔗

✨What should you expect?✨

This workshop will start off by offering information on the impacts of relationships on mental health and wellness, exploring some of the potential difficulties in connecting with others as well as strategies for seeking and finding support.

The workshop will then continue to give you a strategy for seeking and finding support through mutual support groups. This portion of the workshop will teach the basic principles and structure of a mutual support group, and give you the tools you need to start your own.

This event is open to all, and we encourage anyone curious about this subject matter to join us and bring any questions you may have with you.
