In addition to its staggering impact on physical well-being and mortality, COVID-19 and the pandemic-related restrictions are taking an overwhelming toll on our mental and wellbeing (Galea, Merchant & Lurie, 2020; Fiorillo & Gorwood, 2020). Numerous studies over the last nine months have shown global increases in the prevalence of issues relating to mental health including severity of depression, anxiety, insomnia, substance abuse and post-traumatic stress.

Join a group of mental health professionals and counsellors for a unique 12-hour training with weekly three-hour live meetings and develop essential skills in supporting and resourcing clients to remain calm, connected, and responsive during these difficult times.
