Program Description

Leisure and recreational opportunities offered daily at The Mental Health Network of Chatham-Kent to help improve physical and mental health. Leisure and Recreation provides a variety of benefits that include, stress management, enhanced self-esteem, positive lifestyle development, personal satisfaction, and improved quality of life and preventive health. The Mental Health Network of Chatham-Kent offers intentional peer support opportunities in an informal setting by certified peer support staff with the opportunity to socialize with people who share similar experiences. Peer support is a coping tool based on sharing a mutually supportive relationship with someone who understands what you are going through and how you are feeling. Peer led groups including WRAP (Wellness Action Recovery Plan) are taught three times per year for 12 week intervals. The Mental Health Network of Chatham-Kent provides advocacy to individuals who live with a mental illness and their families. We advocate at the systems level, ensuring that all persons affected by mental illness have a voice within our municipality and across the province. We explore topics such as self-esteem, anger management, assertive communication, stress and anxiety, depression, goal setting, stigma, relapse prevention and planning, and resource awareness.
