The CICS Newcomer Mental Health Team is organizing an online Newcomer Men’s Support Group starting from September 21, 2021 for Mandarin-speaking newcomers. Informed by the principles and techniques of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), this online support group is designed for newcomer men to share their personal stories and to learn new techniques/strategies to respond to their life challenges.
We are grateful if you could help to share this event message among your clients and networks! We have also attached the event flyer (printed in Simplified Chinese) for your reference. Your support and referrals are greatly appreciated! Individuals can join all four sessions or just one of them.CICS-Mens-support-group
