CARE – Community & Resiliency for our Healthcare Workers


A Free Mindfulness Program for Mental Health

The CARE program will help you improve your day-to-day functioning, well-being and emotional challenges posed by Covid 19.

CARE is a six-week mental health and mindfulness program, designed for caregivers, front line  and health-care workers, to help develop and sustain emotional well-being during these turbulent times.  The CARE mindfulness program will explore the model of empathy and cultivating healthy social connections and emotional regulation through mindfulness which creates optimum mental and physical wellbeing during this time of pandemic and beyond.

CARE is offered live online so you can attend the group from your home or work space. Each session will be 1 hour and 15 min long, and delivered by a certified mindfulness facilitator. Participants have the option  to access daily drop-in support sessions that are 30 min to help them develop and maintain a regular mindfulness practice.

In this workshop participants will:

  • Learn coping skills and emotional regulation
  • Develop strategies to deal with difficult situations
  • Increase connection with others and reduce feelings of isolation
