About the event
Pursuing Wellness is a monthly gathering on the 4th Thursday of the month (excluding November) from 6:30 - 7:30 in the parlor. Each gathering will open with a short grounding exercise before facilitators lead discussions, share videos and information, or share stories of our journey of pursuing wellness. These sessions will be led by Lisa Charland, Teresa English, Trek Reef, and Stephanie Trudel. None of the facilitators claim to be healthcare professionals and these gatherings are not intended to take the place of anyone's current healthcare practices.
September is Suicide Prevention Month. Lisa Charland will share some personal stories, discuss suicidal ideation, recovery, warning signs, and risk factors for suicide. We'll watch a video and discuss crisis planning using Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP).
