More Online Groups have launched!

In 2020, we launched a Mindfulness Workshop and a Self Love Group online and on a drop-in basis. Strengthening Families Counselling Group also began online through our student clinician. These groups are in addition to our long-standing CBT and DBT-Infused Groups that transitioned online earlier in the year.

A Message from NSTN (March 2020)

We understand that there is increased anxiety associated with COVID-19 and we encourage everyone to take appropriate precautions such as limiting social contacts and participating in hand washing protocols. That said, we know that the stress associated with this is causing a lot of emotional distress in our community and among our clients. 

We want to remind clients to focus on maintaining their mental health – this is an ideal time to increase mindfulness practice, stay focussed on healthy routines, exercise, eat well, practice sleep hygiene, avoiding alcohol/substance use, review CBT skills, review DBT skills, read recovery-based material, talk to professional supports, etc. to reduce unnecessary distress and suffering.
