Join us for a morning discussion with two professional counsellors on the benefits of community for our mental health. 

We will discuss how isolation can be detrimental to our mental well-being, and ways to address this prevalent issue – one that strongly impacts Vancouver. One of our speakers, Claudia Mérida-Rossetto, has collaborated with the Vancouver Foundation to research the impacts of social isolation in our community.

Through encouraging connection and fostering dialogue we can promote mental wellness. We will also hear personal stories from individuals who have experienced challenges related to mental health and community.

Our partner organizations for this event are the Office of Ministries and Outreach of the Catholic Archdiocese of Vancouver, Sanctuary Mental Health Ministries and St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation.
