New Skills for Safer Living Group


Skills

Self Help Alliance, CMHA and Lutherwood are excited to offer the Skills for Safer Living group to youth aged 14-16 and their guardians. If your child has experienced thoughts of suicide, self-harm and/or are engaging in self-harming behaviours this group will help them:

  • Learn to better understand their feelings and how to talk about them
  • Decrease the thinking patterns that may be contributing to self-harm or thinking about suicide
  • Gain control and choices in crisis situations to increase safety

As a guardian, Skills for Safer Living will help you:

  • Increase understanding of risk and protective factors
  • Increase ability to respond to suicidal/self-harming thoughts and behaviours
  • Understand skills being taught to youth

To register, contact Angela Weber-Thompson at 519-623-9383 x 4306. Please inquire at your earliest convenience as space is limited

"Immigrants can have issues with languages, workplace cultures, and a lack of a network of people. Lutherwood listened to me and offered great advice. Local employers should consider hiring recent immigrants as we have so much to offer and are looking for a chance to prove ourselves."
