The Kamloops Community YMCA-YWCA has received a $10,000 grant from the Bell Let’s Talk Community Fund to support the addition of a sixth mental-wellness program to help adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression and/or self-compassion in the Kamloops area.
With the Bell Let’s Talk Community Fund grant, the Kamloops Y will be able to have two staff become certified mindful self-compassion teachers. This will allow the Kamloops Y to offer the evidence-based, eight-week mindful self-compassion program to people in the Kamloops area.
As a result, more people will have the chance to learn strategies to cultivate the skill of self-compassion through evidence-based programming led by trained mental-health professionals.
“We are excited to expand our current mindfulness-based programming in Kamloops and surrounding areas to support more people within our community who are struggling, thanks to the Bell Let’s Talk Community Fund grant,” said Jenna Nickle, program manager for mental-wellness programs at the Kamloops Y.
