Perhaps you view yourself, others, and the world through a negative lens. Well, you’re not alone!

Melanie Katz is back for round two of How To Safely Hold Conversations About Suicide. This topic seemed to be quite impactful for our community the first time, and given the time of year we are heading into, we thought it would be great to have this conversation again. Suicide isn’t always an easy topic to think about, let alone discuss. It is incredibly important that we do talk about it, and get our loved ones the help they need to prevent them from reaching a point of crisis. It’s normal to feel worried, helpless or confused when a loved one mentions suicide, but there’s a lot you can do to support them. In fact, your compassion and support could save a life. In this webinar delivered by Shift therapist Melanie Katz, you will engage in a discussion about suicide and how you can support loved ones, learn about community resources that are available to you, and get the chance to practice your newly acquired communication skills.

In this webinar, Shift therapist Azmaira Mawji will talk about the basics of a growth mindset, how it can positively impact your life, and how you can begin cultivating it.
Does the sound of your alarm clock annoy you? Are your mornings filled with dread, apathy, or simply a lack of enthusiasm for the day to come? If this hits home, this upcoming webinar is for you! It’s hard to stay motivated, and harder still as we enter the winter months with darker days, longer nights and colder (much colder!) weather. However, a few shifts in routine and mindset can help you wake up on the right side of the bed when motivation falters. In this webinar, Shift psychotherapist, social worker, and mental health researcher Isayah Alman will talk about cultivating motivated mornings with purposeful planning, time chunking, and behavioural activation techniques that have been proven to help regulate and maintain motivation and well-being.
