Learning a new concept or a new skill, along with peers, is always an enriching and fun experience. Here at Heart It Out, we try to integrate this valuable practice into our daily lives- and yours, by extension! BrainSnacks denotes one hour during which all of us gather together to learn something new and fun! Are you ready to get some fun treats for your brain? This event lets you connect to your inner child which is a child-like personality that everyone has and situated deep within our unconsciousness.
When you encounter some challenging situations in your adulthood you might feel some of those emotions. This art exercise helps you to nurture your inner child. So join us on the 20th of may from 6-7 pm to build a bridge between you and your inner child and have some insights about how you could fully express yourself!
Going through a mental health challenge can make you feel isolated and afraid, among many other things. I remember feeling this way when I was in a difficult place, and that's when I signed up for a buddy circle at HiO. Although I was scared at first, that changed to relief and a sense of hope. The buddy circle reminded me that I'm not completely alone in my journey; help and company is always an arm's reach away :')
Buddy Circle serves exactly what it promises! I remember being a little nervous about my first session, but as you see people open up one by one and you relate with other's struggles, it feels like you're a part of a community, and you can really understand each other. What I liked about the buddy circle was that it always provides us with a learning strategy, something to take back and implement in your everyday life.
