With the recent pandemic there has been a greater increase in social isolation due to the lockdown and physical distancing measures currently in place. Extensive research has shown social isolation has negative impacts on one’s mental health and well-being. So, to generate more resilience and inspire dialogue to action, Gateway is now offering free educational opportunities for the community. It’s a chance to learn more about peer support, coaching conversations, system navigation and how to be an advocate within your community. The free Connectedness Coaching program addresses these topics and more!
The program is available as a six-hour self-paced e-learning course and via zoom webinar, both providing opportunities to engage with other learners. Our Gallery for Inspiration is a freely accessible website meant to inspire action among community members by getting ideas rolling of ways to invest and give back to the community during these difficult times.
We look forward to supporting your continuous learning journey.
