Anxiety Canada STRIDES Winter 2016 Newsletter
Message from the Executive Director
As 2016 comes to an end, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the Anxiety Canada Ambassadors and donors – the support we receive makes it possible for us to maintain, update, and create trusted self-help resources and expand our community programs. Over the past couple of months, Anxiety Canada had the pleasure of participating in several events; the BC School Counsellors Conference, Kwantlen Polytechnic University's Pieces of Mind Mental Health Conference, and we also partnered with The Chan Centre and UBC’s Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies for a panel discussion about obsessive compulsive disorder, titled: A Little OCD? Our participation in these programs would not be possible if it weren't for the support we receive, so thank you.
December 5th was International Volunteer Day, so I’ll also take this opportunity to express my gratitude towards all the Anxiety Canada volunteers. Our volunteers put in countless hours to help us provide programs, services, as well as create awareness through efforts such as our MindShift Gala. I want to thank everyone who has contributed to the success of our association over the past year and wish everyone a safe and happy holiday.
If there is someone who you think could benefit from being part of our community, suggest that s/he follow us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube. As we often say “Small steps can lead to big change.”
