We know that being separated from your support systems can be challenging and anxiety-inducing. Our counsellors here at SSAIC have compiled a list of our most used tools, resources, and exercises to share with you. Please utilize these in a safe way, allowing room for yourself to take a break from them when you need to.

We’ve also recorded a series of videos to replace our Open Group programming for the time being! Click the image below to watch all of our Virtual Group Sessions!
