Options for helping participants flourish

Actions most needed to help mental health promotion flourish include actions to help ourselves flourish. This session reinforced the importance of self-care and offered self-care options for participants to try, including some that could be brought into participants’ own settings. Participants were invited to choose a breakout room to participate in, or to consider something else that grounds and centers them.

Key messages

    • Participants engaged in a variety of self-care options, from quiet meditation to casual conversations and interactive virtual games.
    • Participants appreciated the inclusion of self-care options in the program to support their own flourishing and the work they do to strengthen structural determinants of health.

Breakout room facilitators

    • Aneta Abramowicz, Jennifer Attack, Lindsay Croxall, Eric d’Avernas, Dawn Matheson
