BCACC’s Matters of the Mind Presentations

A holistic approach to mental health and wellness, Matters of the Mind is a series of free online public events focusing on relevant and timely topics related to mental well-being. We’re contributing to the wellness of all British Columbians by fostering community connection, breaking stigma, and providing empowering information to help people through complexity.

In these sessions, BCACC brings the experts to you, to provide collaborative and captivating conversations. Each session is carefully crafted to empower, inspire, and equip you with the knowledge to help navigate life’s challenges.

Topics we’ve explored include parenting youth with ADHD, dealing with holiday stress and boundary setting, what to expect from your first counselling session, and more!
