Providing Individuals with Social Interaction and Discussion. A group for individuals with any (dis)ability, dealing with daily life circumstances and challenges to openly discuss ideas and concerns. What is a (dis) ability? Any disability, for us, refers to any physical, emotional, mental, voluntary, involuntary state that impedes the quality of daily life due to the daily changes we face in all aspects of our lives. We are firm believers that not every disability is visible, and support and understanding among peers is essential. As an organization, providing a safe space in which individuals may gather to fulfill social interaction and self-exploration is fundamental. With the facilitation of trained individuals, and the ideas for the program coming from the group members, we are certain this group will be a positive experience for all involved. This group discussion is meant to be therapeutic in nature, but it is not therapy. We have identified a demand for a safe space for individuals to discuss problems and struggles, and triumphs, and this is the sole purpose of the group. This group is designed to be exactly what group members would want and need. Facilitated by Georgian College Social Service Service Worker Placements In Partnership with The Gilbert Centre and Georgian College Social Service Worker Program.
Cathy Wild, a Barrie resident, began painting as therapy in April 2016. This was the journey of self discovery after brain surgery. She finds this practice a mixture of; stimulation, reflection, thought provocation, peaceful calm, relaxation and mindfulness. Being a self-proclaimed artist, she now volunteers her time teaching others to paint as well, (while continuing her own recovery.) Some of her art has been on display at The Edge Gallery and The Barrie Art Club. A nominal fee of $2.00 for Members $5.00 for Non Members is charged for each session. All are welcome to attend this drop-in, watercolour art class from 1:00pm - 3:00pm Tuesdays to explore their artistic abilities.
