Getting Down to Basics – Poverty, Mental Health, and Counsellors for Social Justice
Friday, May 14, 10:45 - 12:00p.m. (Consbrook)
This interactive workshop will raise you consciousness about Canada’s poor track record in ensuring basic supports for mental and physical wellbeing for all, the impact of poverty on mental health, the depth of need that most Canadians cannot relate to, and the role counsellors committed to social justice in effecting change locally and nationally. Participants will engage in exercises and activities designed to bring to life the experiences of those living at or below poverty levels. We will examine real life examples of interventions designed to address these needs and the impact of poverty on counselling practice in Canada.


Support Women's Network PEI
This year Counsellors for Social Justice will be holding another raffle during the conference. We have three great items:

• Another of Jo-Anne’s gorgeous quilts, with new design and colour scheme
• A basket of local treasures from Wolfville, NS that will enhance your holiday travels
• The book, Culture-infused Counselling (2010), by Nancy Arthur and Sandra Collins

Our goal is to exceed our 2009 success by raising at least $1000 for a local agency in Charlottetown. This year, the funds will go to support the Women's Network PEI.

Please visit our display at the conference to purchase your raffle tickets in support of this organization. The first, second, and third prize winners will be announced on Thursday afternoon (May 13) in the main conference area at 5:30pm. You must be present to collect your treasure!

If you are unable to attend the conference this year and still wish to make a donation, CSJ will accept online credit card donations via PayPal for Women's Network PEI.
