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 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.
- 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 four-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
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.
