Getting Off the Couch! Inspiring a Healthier Lifestyle

June 13, 2019, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

This workshop will discuss the physical, mental health and social benefits of being active.  For many people on the autism spectrum, getting to the gym or just having an active lifestyle can be challenging.  Strategies for increasing recreational opportunities will be shared as well as how to build a social network for engaging in community and physical activities.

Speaker: Mike Barrett, MC, R.Psych, is a Registered Psychologist with a Master’s degree in Counselling from the University of Calgary. He has worked in the field of adolescent mental health for over 12 years. Mike comes to Sinneave with experience and knowledge in mental health, stress, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, self-confidence, and transition planning. He enjoys providing assistance and support to adolescents, adults, and families from a variety of diverse backgrounds in both individual and group settings.

If you are unable to attend in person, this workshop will be available online through CES, and you may visit their website http://community.hmhc.ca/sessions/?p=online to register.
