Here at Shift, some of our very favourite things are connection and community. That's why just a little over one week ago, the clinic doors were wide open to fellow mental health professionals for a networking social event. Therapists, counsellors, and RPs alike shared in laughs, drinks, and a decent array of cheeses (thanks Jor) and chatted late into the evening.
So much gratitude to those who spent their evening with us! We loved learning about your stories, where you came from, and what motivates you to do the work that you so passionately do. In an industry that can be pretty emotionally taxing, it's important to know that you're not alone and boy, is it refreshing to know that we're all in this together!
As human beings, we need a sense of belonging, and that sense of belonging is what connects us to the many relationships we develop. Communities are also rich in resources, and we look forward to growing together, sharing information, and bettering ourselves as a network, both as individuals and professionals by fostering these connections.
