Upper Island Counselling Says "Let's Talk" Mental Health Every Day!

Upper Island Counselling’s Executive Director Kelsi Baine congratulates everyone who participated in Bell Canada’s Let’s Talk day supporting mental health awareness this year.


“It is so important to hear so many positive community voices across the Comox Valley, Campbell River and North Island communities, helping to reduce stigma around mental health and demonstrating their support for other community members.” Baine said.

Some reflections on a new year....

I USED to think that New Year's resolutions were a bit silly. I USED to think, "why pick January 1 to start making positive changes? That can happen anytime!" But, more and more I'm finding that ANY reason to get us thinking about making positive changes in our lives is a good one. So, if another new year inspires you to reflect on the past with insight and learning, set goals for the future, and determine what needs to change TODAY in order to achieve those goals, well then that is an annual tradition worth celebrating and continuing.
