MKO’s Mobile Crisis Response Team is offering free art therapy sessions for youth in First Nations throughout Manitoba.

Art therapy is a way to help lower risks and to promote healthy behaviours. It uses a person’s creative expressions to promote their mental, physical, and emotional well-being. Art is a safe way to depict one’s personal experiences and emotions and it encourages positivity for personal coping mechanisms.

Sessions vary depending on group size. Sessions include the seven teachings and hands-on activities of youth in a relaxed setting.

Contact Gina Spence to set up sessions in your First Nation by phone at 1-844-927-LIFE (5433) or by email at [email protected]
