The Shelved Group

Stay tuned for next group dates!

The Shelved Group is to provide education, awareness, and an opportunity to reflect on what’s on your shelf. Participants will be provided with evidence and research-based information on topics relevant to substance use and mental health. The groups are facilitated in a non-threatening, non-judgmental, non-stigmatizing format. Turn your camera on or off -you decide. At the end of the groups participants will be provided with a menu of options to launch from- individual sessions, further online learning, or targeted learning about substance use.

The word shelved is used as a metaphor to describe those things we have in our lives impacting our health and wellness. We “shelve” things like anxiety, substance use, and behaviours not helpful to us. We also “shelve” things like knowledge, hope, and health related behaviours. Whatever is on your shelf can be reflected on and learned from. We can be purposeful in what we have room for and how to manage it.
