Groups & Workshops

Groups & Workshops are powerful vehicles for change. When we participate in a group with others who are living with similar concerns, we begin to realize that we are not alone in our struggles. We explore and learn new skills, practicing these in the safety of the group. Groups can be an empowering experience; feeling the support of the facilitator(s) and fellow group members can increase our motivation and energy to create the change we want for ourselves.

Please check out the groups outlined below and choose one that you believe is a good fit for you:

Date & Time: Monday, November 23, 1:00-2:00 pm

& Thursday, November 26, 2:00-3:00 pm

Location: Zoom (see below for details)

This peer-led interactive workshop encourages the student to proactively identify 5 key stages along with their mental health roadmap:

1. What are the things that cause them to feel stressed?
2. How do those stressors impact how they feel and act?
3. How do they typically cope with stress?
4. How will they recognize when the stress they’re experiencing becomes unmanageable?
5. Who is part of their support network – when they need to ask for help, where would they go?

You will have a chance to meet 1:1 with upper-year UTM Mentors to get individualized support, strategies and help with goal setting if you choose.  Come to listen and learn or to meet with a mentor 1:1….the choice is yours!

All PSP programming is CCR approved!  Attend 2 out of the 4 PSP workshops listed and get a CCR credit.  Further details to be provided during the workshop.
