Women's Program Manager
We provide education, assistance, coping techniques, and support for women struggling with mental health issues. Through a partnership with SHOPPERS LOVE .YOU. we now offer a Women’s Wellness Group, Women’s Speakers Series, and our Postpartum Peer Support Group.
Women’s Speakers Series
Crushing the stigma, one story at a time...
The Women’s Speakers Series will be an online series via Facebook Live. Featuring our Key Note Speaker Samra Zafar who is an award-winning internationally renowned speaker, bestselling author, and Top 100 Most Powerful Women in Canada. We will also have a variety of Mental Health Professionals, Nutritionists, Occupational Therapists, Life Coaches and every day women. The series is based off our Peer Support model in the way that we empower those who suffer from mental illness to share their lived experiences and recovery stories of hope in a safe and supportive environment. The Speakers Series was created to give the women of our community a platform to speak about their stories in the open, and to feel empowered in doing so.
Postpartum Peer Support Group
Women's Wellness Group
Our Women's Wellness Group allows for women in our community to come together in a positive, safe and supportive environment. We offer a safe haven to empower positivity, support growth and to enhance learning. Women will share their experiences, embrace a positive mindset and expand their knowledge of mental health through topics such as: Self-care, Mindfulness, Yoga, Nutrition, Paint night, Meditation, Walk and talks, and a Book night.
The current Wellness group is full. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this group is limited to 8 participants.
Stay tuned for future Woman’s Wellness groups. Monitor this page and our social media for dates, times and locations.
Disordered Eating Program
Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba is pleased to announce our latest pilot project, our Disordered Eating and Body Image Workshop, and Peer-Support Group.
There is such value in sharing our stories and learning to re-write the narratives that often keep us locked in shame and self-deprecation. Disordered eating, obsessive dieting, low self-esteem, diagnosable eating disorders, and other co-morbid issues are part of a mental health space that currently does not have provincial supports in place to sustain the growing demands of the community. MDAM’s goal is to continue to expand our peer-support-based programming, to provide further assistance for people in this space.
This workshop runs weekly for six sessions. The intention of having a longer spanning workshop is to provide education and skill-building while also creating a community around empowerment.
