Kathi Cameron, 

Mental Health & Human Performance

What is so great about groups?

Group support, therapy, and education delivers similar benefits as does individual counselling.  The benefits of social connectivity can help with feelings of isolation and loneliness while offering cost effective mental health support. At Kathi Cameron, Mental Health & Human Performance, we offer 4-week courses and 2-week workshops all focused on support, discussions, education, and skill development.  

Below is the next workshop offered. Check early January for the complete list of all courses and workshops offered over the winter "semester" 2023 by checking out www.mhhpeducation.blogspot.com .

WORKSHOP:  Burnout Prevention & Awareness

As predicted, burnout is the new pandemic and one that sneaks up on you without notice.  If you are experiencing low mood, constant fatigue and loss of interest in most things, you could be nearing burnout. 

This workshop will cover everything you need to know about burnout and stress while offering real life strategies for management, prevention, and even crisis.  Topics will include; lifestyle strategies, general mental health information, boundary setting, managing toxic workplaces, and strategies you can start putting to work immediately.  

This two week workshop allows for take-home practice in between and the opportunity to learn what works for you and what doesn't. 


Thank you to all who attended this workshop! It was another great success.  For more information on when the next session is scheduled, please contact Kathi at [email protected] 

            

               

COURSE: Body Image & Aging

It's common to read or hear about body image (negative/positive or otherwise) in social media.  However, we have yet to spend any time addressing body image and the aging process.  


This group will focus on aging, body image, and the challenges that come with it.  From weight gain and wrinkles to all those changes that are out of our control, this course will focus on education and support while providing a safe and supportive environment to share challenges and learn from others.


Thank you to those who attended this group. For more information on the next, please contact Kathi at [email protected]

WORKSHOP: Why Weight?

Are you exhausted with dieting and weight cycling and the emotional fallout from it?

Participants will benefit from the support that comes from a group environment.  Topics will include; the science and psychology of fat/weight, the emotional perils of the diet/exercise culture, and strategies to help move towards body neutrality...so you can focus on the things that really matter!

COURSE: Exercise & Mental Health

Did you know that research has now identified different exercise prescriptions for a wide variety of mental health issues? From anxiety and depression to eating disorders, schizophrenia and substance abuse there are specific exercises that can help treat or manage various issues. 

This course will examine how our present attitudes and common practices of exercise leads to mental health issues, higher rates of injury, and less exercise participation. We will cover topics related to shifting our perspectives of what exercise can and cannot do, the components of fitness as it relates to mental health, and exercise adherence strategies that will help support life long activity.  

If you would like to add more physical activity to your life but tend to fall off the wagon, or if you don't know where to start, this course is for you!
