Welcome to

Living Well Learning Centre

We are very excited to introduce the Living Well Learning Centre to everyone living in The Battlefords. Based on a test model from the UK, our centre focuses on mental health, well-being and empowerment through education.

CMHA Battlefords Branch’s Living Well Learning Centre, just like a college, offers a range of courses in a vibrant learning environment of equality and diversity. There are no tests, admission is free and everyone is welcome. Curriculum is unique: developed by subject experts and mental health professionals working with people who have their own personal experience in mental health recovery.

Our centre operates on the belief that everyone can experience recovery and thrive within healthy and supportive communities. Living Well Learning Centre is for everyone – those with lived experience, their families, friends, service providers and individuals looking to strengthen their well-being.

Launched this fall, we offer 14 adult and 5 youth courses. Depending on public health guidelines, classes will be are held virtually or in person at Living Well Learning Centre (located at 1942 Kramer Place). Our first course, the Art of Friendship, began this October and teaches us how to build strong, healthy friendships. Courses like Positivity and Optimism, Insights into Anxiety and Depression, Building Better Boundaries, Maintaining Wellness and Workplace Expectations are just some examples of the learning opportunities taking place at our centre.

The Living Well Learning Centre has no core funding and as a new initiative relies on the generosity of our donors. Join us on this journey of hope, resiliency and stronger mental health for everyone in our community by partnering with us to offset the costs associated with course delivery and materials.
