For many people, 2020 hasn’t been an easy year and for some, the result has been a rise in anxiety.

The PCN is here to help. We have a variety of free resources including two new virtual workshops:

Anxiety 101

Anxiety 101 is a free, two-hour workshop facilitated by a mental health professional that will help adults understand their experience of anxiety and teach participants some basic skills to help manage it.

Topics include:

  • What is anxiety?
  • What does it feel like?
  • What makes it worse?
  • What makes it better?
  • Where can you get more help?

Anxiety to Calm

Anxiety to Calm is a free eight-week long, two-hour per session workshop run by mental health professionals that focuses on developing skills to manage anxiety. Participants will be introduced to a few evidence-based skills each week throughout the workshop.

The workshop addresses three key areas:

  • Find calm: Learn exercises that will help me to manage my anxiety
  • Challenge myself: Challenge my thoughts, behaviours and emotions
  • Live well: Learn to improve my lifestyle

Additional help

According to a recent Angus Reid poll, 2020 has even managed to break Canadians’ three-year trend of optimism. One in five now anticipate being in a worse financial condition next year. Albertans are the most pessimistic about their financial future with 30% predicting worsening finances.
