COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS:

HEADSPACE ANXIETY WORKSHOP 

Headspace is now taking registration for our Anxiety workshops starting on 3 August, every Tuesday afternoon for five weeks.

  

Their last program was very successful and at full capacity. Participants expressed it was challenging coming to the first week due to their anxiety but they were grateful for the non-judgemental environment. The group appreciated meeting new people and learning new strategies for anxiety and everyday life skills.

Please register asap if you are interested, as participants will need to come in for a meeting before the program begins.
