Coping with Current Events: Managing Anxiety and Stress

Anyone – Online

With there being so much talk about the current events, for some of us, it has understandably increased our anxiety and stress. Our Coping with Current Events series hopes to bring together the community during a time of unknown and continual change, to learn and support ourselves and others. 

Our online Coping with Current Events: Managing Anxiety and Stress will discuss the continued impact of the current events on our well-being, what we can do to feel a little more in control, and some options to help manage our feelings of anxiety and stress. 

Our goal is for you to leave this online session with at least one tool or piece of knowledge that you can implement right now to “reduce that squeeze” we all feel.

This session will be hosted online, so to join this access to the internet or phone is needed. Instructions on how you can join will be sent once registration is completed.

  • Online community session
  • 1 session, 1hr 30 minutes long

At CMHA Kelowna and Discovery College, our main priority is always our community’s well-being. Following the advice of the Canadian Government and to ensure the safety of everyone who is due to take a Discovery College course, we are choosing to postpone our in-person courses at this moment in time due to COVID-19. Discovery College has created an online series, Coping with Current Events, to help create community through learning and support throughout this time. Find out more on the Course page.
