New CHECK-IN Program

Journey of Our Lives is 10-week program for people aged 18+ who have lived experience of emotional distress.

What is a skill, some piece of knowledge you’ve accumulated, or a strength, that helps you or your community keep moving forward? As people with lived experience of emotional distress and/or mental health service use, we all encounter storms along the way. We take time to rest. We celebrate reaching our destination.

Journey of Our Lives is an invitation to take a walk with us as people with living experience, towards what we fight for, what we value and what we are committed to. We are tying up our shoelaces for a trek of co-reflection, collective care, and connecting to what keeps us well and strong.

VMIAC CHECK-IN is running a Free 10 week program, Journey of Our Lives

  1. Hi, I am very interested in the Journeys of our Lives Check In program. I did something similar with the Check in Group last year and learned about more coping strategies.
