Semaine de la santé mentale : Pleine conscience

2021-04-26

La Semaine de la santé mentale, organisée par l'Association canadienne pour la santé mentale au début du mois de mai, revêt une importance particulière cette année.  Il n'y a pas un seul d'entre nous qui n'a pas ou ne connaît pas quelqu'un qui a des défis à relever pour sa santé mentale.  La Bibliothèque publique d'Ottawa donne le coup d'envoi d'une série d'ateliers interactifs gratuits en ligne  sur la pleine conscience pour nous aider tous à faire face au stress.  Ne manquez pas cette occasion d'introduire la pleine conscience dans vos vies et de pratiquer des stratégies et des habiletés d'adaptation.     

Le thème de l'Association canadienne pour la santé mentale cette année est #ParlerPourVrai de ce qu’on ressent. Reconnaître et parler de son stress, de ses émotions, aide à les gérer.  Introduire la pleine conscience dans l'environnement familial améliore notre compassion,  notre connexion et le bien-être émotionnel de chacun des membres de notre famille.  Cette pratique permet également de modifier notre relation au stress.   

Les trois ateliers sur la pleine conscience sont dirigés par Rebekka Wallace Roy de Be Kind, Be Brave, Be Present.  Rebekka est une travailleuse sociale agréée et une psychothérapeute passionnée par la pleine conscience. Les ateliers seront offerts en anglais, mais les participants pourront poser des questions en anglais ou en français. Nous avons prévu un atelier approfondi en soirée pour les parents, suivi d'ateliers en après-midi pour les adolescents et les enfants.   L'atelier pour les parents sera enregistré et mis sur le site YouTube de la BPO afin que vous puissiez le regarder plus tard si vous le manquez.  Les ateliers seront conçus pour répondre aux besoins des participants.  Ils comprendront des exercices de pleine conscience, des discussions sur les possibilités de développer des plans concrets pour mettre en œuvre des pratiques de pleine conscience dans leur vie quotidienne.   

Nous vous encourageons à explorer les listes de livres que nous avons préparées et à vous inscrire à un atelier sur la pleine conscience.
