Beginning September 21 for 10 weeks, an English-language weekly workshop addressing anxiety issues will take place in Vaudreuil-Dorion.
Anxiety is well known to many people but many more have been affected by it in the recent months. Since 2008, the territory of Vaudreuil-Soulanges has relied on Le Versant – a community organization that helps people with anxiety disorders.
The confinement and pandemic we are experiencing has brought us many worries. We know that anxiety is one of the most common mental health problems. The physical and psychological symptoms related to anxiety can generate many visits to health clinics, emergency rooms, and to mental health specialists who are already overloaded. Luckily, numerous therapeutic approaches can relieve anxiety but the one that is the most efficient is called cognitive-behavioural therapy which is used by Le Versant.
We organize workshops for adults, in French and in English. As we follow the prescribed pandemic health rules, the groups for the present session will be of eight participants only, with two facilitators. Face coverings and physical distancing will be mandatory.
This year, our workshop in English is offered on Monday evenings, from 7 to 9 p.m., starting September 21, for 10 weeks. The workshop is free. A $40 fee will apply for the didactic material required for participation in the group and the membership to the organization.
We are presently taking registrations for this group and for eight others offered in French. To register, go to our website leversant.org and click on the Registration tab.
For more information, you can send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, leave a message on our voice mail by calling (450) 455-6171, extension 70657 or through our web site leversant.org. Someone from our organization will answer your request.
The workshop will be held at the CDC V-S, Corporation de développement communautaire de Vaudreuil-Soulanges at 10 Rue Saint-Louis in Vaudreuil-Dorion.
