Peer/Self Help

Program Description

NISA believes that the whole person is important, and when you are here you will consider the many dimensions of wellness, like physical, emotional, financial, spiritual, and social wellness, to name a few. Our monthly calendar is full of opportunities to explore your wellness, with groups often offered in topics like meditation, eating well for the mind, indigenous wellness, pet therapy, and yarn work. Come to our Recovery/Wellness group to discuss a wellness topic, or take part in active living, on our walks or by gardening. Peer support groups exist with a focus on recovery/wellness, and specific groups run for mothers experiencing mental health challenges, francophones, family members supporting loved ones, and those with thoughts of suicide. NISA also offers its members — and the community — the Wellness Recovery Action Plan® course, often called WRAP. Over 8 sessions, you can learn how to unlock mental health recovery by learning more about hope, personal responsibility, education, self-advocacy and finding your support. We offer the course with trained facilitators, all of them peers.

Access Information

Referrals are not required. We are always happy to introduce someone to NISA. Simply give us a call to set up a time for a tour. Usually, we can accommodate you within a day. You can either come with clients or they can come on their own. We will show them around and introduce them to the programs and give them an opportunity to get to know the members and staff of NISA.
