UPLIFT stands for “Using Practice and Learning to Increase Favourable Thoughts”. It is a mindfulness-based cognitive behavioural therapy program that improves depression, and overall psychological quality of life. Groups of 5-8 adults meet virtually for an hour once a week for 8 weeks.

The sessions teach valuable coping strategies and topics that include: coping and relaxing, monitoring thoughts, and preventing future low moods.

Participants must:

  • be at least 18 years old
  • be a caretaker for someone who has epilepsy, seizures, or a seizure disorder
  • and be struggling with depression or anxiety.

This 8-week session takes place on Tuesdays, May 4 to June 22, and is specifically for caregivers. It is being led by Elana Ellison,  Coordinator of Child & Youth Services. This session is now full.

If you are interested in being part of future UPLIFT program sessions, please complete an UPLIFT form.
