FREE Webinar: Well-Being 101 - For Service Providers

January 13, 2021
10:30 AM to 12:00 PM

During this session we will discuss compassion fatigue and exhaustion, and how to take care of our hearts and minds. Well-being can be described as the state of being comfortable, healthy and happy. In partnership with Canadian Mental Health Association Manitoba (CMHA) this course will describe the various dimensions of well-being and the impact of well-being on our mental health.



Who should attend:

Those responsible for providing service to the public in the health or non-profit sector, leaders of volunteers who's volunteers may be experiencing isolation due to the lockdown and need extra attention, those caring for loved ones and experiencing prolonged stress. Participants can include Executive Directors, program managers, board members, volunteer managers, and any member of the public who is interested in learning more about how to support themselves and others.
