Providing emotional state training for youth who wish to manage feelings and behaviours – including Healing, Learning, and Rebuilding on personal, interpersonal, and community levels.
Promote self-discipline and positive daily rituals for emotional and mental wellness.
Promoting self-awareness and emotional growth through heightened emotional awareness activities, such as communication training, where youth learn to communicate effectively to themselves and others. Youth also learn to positively interpret incoming messages from thoughts and social settings to maintain well-rounded inner and interpersonal relationships.
Promote heightened emotional self-awareness by teaching youth to identify and evaluate their feelings, including instructions on the four core emotions of anger, sadness, fear, and happiness; instruction on mindfulness – meditation; and instruction on verbally labelling feelings, etc.
RCHC aims to Partner with local holistic and healthcare providers to provide easy access to health and resources for Continental African Canadian members.
ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS
Working with experts in the healthcare industry, RCHC will offer socio-emotional and self-awareness learning, healing, and group-sharing activities, including outreach and referral services for members who require more professional counselling.
SEX & RELATIONSHIP
Through RCHC’s Health Learning, we also encourage sexual responsibility and decision-making regarding the risks and consequences associated with sexual activity and general living.
Our Holistic Health and Wellness program offers space and activities for experience sharing between individuals, families, communities, and beyond.
Through this and many other activities, members learn to listen and confide in one another. Participants will engage in exercises designed to promote empathy towards the struggles and challenges of others and acquire tools to identify and carry forward lessons from past or current experiences to shape new or renewed paths without prejudice through Learning, Healing, and Rebuilding.
