We have all developed ways to cope with adversity. As leaders, advocates, change-makers and youth we are at a higher risk of developing burnout. This interactive workshop will help you address your emotional, psychological, physiological, social / community, and spiritual needs. This is an online session for everyone! We will work collaboratively to create a self-care/resiliency toolkit to combat the effects of quarantine.
This last session will take place on Monday, Jan. 18 from 7 to 8 p.m.
Open to youth ages 13-18 in Christian, Jersey, Macoupin, and Montgomery Counties
What can you hope to learn?
- How to maintain your wellbeing and identify self-care tools for physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual health.
- How to increase your resiliency and capability to cope with adversity, uncertainty, and stress.
The Guest Speaker: Cierra Garrow is a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), practicing and living in Northwestern Ontario. Cierra works as a Psychiatric Rights Adviser for PPAO through the MOHLTC, a Children’s Mental Health Therapist for FIREFLY, and a Post-Secondary Instructor for Seven Generations Education Institute in their Social Service Worker Program. As a practicing mental health professional, advocate, and educator, Cierra has experienced the catastrophic effects of burnout, vicarious trauma, and compassion fatigue. The toll this had on her mental health was devastating and could have been mitigated through a self-care plan. To be able to help others and ensure all people can fulfill their potential and live with dignity, equality, and health, we need to be healthy ourselves.
