Renewal? What if I’m Just Hanging On?

Practical Mental Health Strategies for Coping Well

Many of us are just doing okay or are struggling during this pandemic. We’ve learned to adjust and re-invent routines over the past 20 months. On January 16, Angela Haig will look at what else we can do to cope well.

Our Share the Plate partner for January is Wahbung Abinoonjiaag

Wahbung Abinoonjiaag’s programs are based on the wisdom of Elders, Caregivers and Professionals who worked in the field of family violence. The name itself when translated to the English language means, “Children of Tomorrow”. The programs are unique in their service delivery approaches which incorporate traditional teachings gifted to the people from the variety of indigenous nations’ ancestral heritages that exist on Turtle Island. These cultural aspects are reflective of the urban and rural First Nations communities found within Manitoba and were contributed to by those visitors from other territories who call the Winnipeg region home.
