Weekend Coffee Chat

Vegreville’s project, a Weekend Coffee Chat, is addressing the social isolation and mental health struggles that have been pervasive since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic through a drop-in peer support group. The group is member-driven, ensuring their needs are addressed without judgement in a non-clinical environment. This support group provides an opportunity to reach community members who are struggling with their mental health at times when other services tend to be closed and offers connection to other members. It also acts as a bridge to other resources that may be identified to better support the needs of the group and allows for a full range of options for those struggling with their mental health.
