Charles next to the flip chart stand, facilitating the mental health awareness workshop with the elderly in assisted living in Bridgeport. It was a response to an invitation by the Resident Services Coordinator to engage the elderly with their daily stresses and concerns about coronavirus; and how they use the resources at their disposal to cope with the challenges they may be experiencing.
The facilitator helped create a safe and sacred space where the elderly were able to share about their experiences and what sort of support they needed.
The workshop was successful as seen from the way the participants invited the facilitators to come again for a longer workshop. Unfortunately we had to suspend further consultations due to corona virus.
