Virtual Men’s Group Session
CMHF partnered with Anxiety Canada to pilot a MindShift group therapy program exclusively for men. The response was overwhelmingly positive with a full cohort of 12 men starting the MindShift CBT Groups pilot program on February 8, 2023.
MindShift CBT Groups is Anxiety Canada’s 8-session group therapy program. MindShift helps adults with mild to moderate anxiety find relief through weekly virtual meetings using evidence-based cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
Visit MindShift Groups to learn about co-ed group programming and be the first to learn about future men’s-only programming by signing up for CMHF’s Don’t Change Much newsletter.
