The goal of these workshops is for you to come away with concrete strategies and tools that can help you regain control of your mental health in your everyday life. These workshops include exercises and practice in adopting behaviours that help reduce your symptoms, spot the warning signs and prevent relapse.

Through these workshops, you will be able to improve your quality of life by getting to know yourself and what you are experiencing, assessing your health status and options, choosing what you believe is best for you, and taking concrete action to make changes in your daily behaviors.

The group spirit is without a doubt one of the strengths of our self-management workshops. Our workshops are based on exchange, mutual aid and the sharing of experiences, all in a respectful and caring environment. The workshop leaders act as guides and accompany you in your process and in your decision-making. Because adopting a self-management approach means that you actively participate in your well-being. You get involved in the choices that concern your mental health by adopting behaviours that will improve your quality of life.
