Coping with Uncertainty

Course facilitated by the VCH Peer-led Workshop Program

Feeling stressed by the news of the day? Join others to explore strategies to help cope with uncertainty and manage stress.

Developed during the pandemic, this virtual 4-session series will look at stress and anxiety, and common thinking traps that can affect our mental wellbeing. This course also includes a workbook with many additional tools. Two consecutive sessions of the course will start in January 2022.

The course is being offered as part of a research study on peer-led mental health education using the Recovery College model. 

Participants’ involvement in the research will include:

  • Completing a questionnaire before and after the course
  • Completing a measure of fidelity to the Recovery College model
  • Participating in a 2-hour focus group
  • Sharing basic information about themselves (e.g., age, location, gender identity). Participants are welcome to skip over any questions they don’t want to answer

There is a small honorarium for participating in the research.
