About this Event
We are more connected today, than we have ever been in human history; however, in some ways we have never been lonelier. COVID has exacerbated this separation and has resulted in a mental health crisis, not only in Canada but globally, and this has particular implications for our children.
 
At this workshop, Ali will explore how our mental health is being impacted during these challenging times, and will introduce various clinical tools to support ourselves and our children. He will also focus on how to best provide a supportive environment for our children.
 
**This is a donation-based event and everyone is welcome. You may attend for free, or provide a donation that will help cover the costs of the speaker.**
