Mental Health Virtual Therapy Program for Covid-19

AbilitiCBT

The Manitoba government offers a free, digital therapy program to help people who are having a difficult time coping with isolation and losses due to COVID-19. A referral from a doctor is not needed.
A friend of the church shared this reflection about AbilitiCBT:
  • I decided I needed some help and have been using this program for a few weeks now.
  • I did the first questionnaire/module, and was assigned a counsellor within a few days.
  • My counsellor calls me weekly, at a mutually agreed upon day/time.
  • I then receive the next module, which includes videos and an online questionnaire.
  • I find talking with this very good counsellor combined with the simple coping strategies that are suggested and designed based on my answers to the questions, have been very helpful.
If you or a loved one age 16 or older is experiencing mild to moderate symptoms of anxiety due to the pandemic, you can find more information here: https://www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/bewell/virtualtherapy.html

Community of Caring

As members of this community, we are guided by our covenant as Unitarian Universalists and our congregational Covenant of Right Relations to strive to build a Community of Caring.

The Pastoral Care Team, in keeping with our covenant “to accept and care for each other” has a primary goal of supporting and encouraging members and friends of the church in their efforts to function as a Caring Community – to know that they will be cared for and have the opportunity to care for others. Our Pastoral Care Team works collaboratively with the Minister in order to coordinate appropriate, effective responses to address the pastoral care needs of members and friends of our church.

Members of the Pastoral Care Team are dedicated to providing compassionate support. They seek to be genuinely present when serving – whether as host at our table on Sunday morning, or in any other capacity. They respect the confidentiality of all people and share information to the appropriate Pastoral Care Team personnel only as necessary to provide this support. When specifically requested by the person involved or their family, they may also pass on information to our Caring Community.
