Session 2: Dealing with isolation and loneliness
Isolation can be a result from being emotionally removed from a community. Isolation may cause loneliness or low self-esteem. Some may experience social anxiety, depression, or other mental health concerns. Yet, looking at ways to create opportunities to not be alone may offer hope. We will discuss promoting healthy activities and social connections in a safe way and how to help those dealing with isolation discover a sense of community.

Session 4: Creative Break – The art of calm
Looking for a way to relax your mind and create art at the same time? In this session, we will walk you through a few types of meditative drawing and work on a project together. All you will need is a piece of paper and a pen or pencil. No prior skill is needed to learn these techniques. Note: We are not art therapists or clinicians, just regular people who have benefited from art as a form of meditation.
