Physical and emotional reactions happen as life stressors occur. Having confidence that we are able to effectively manage our emotions is important, as it helps protect our well-being, maintain our healthy connections, make effective decisions, and respond in healthy ways.
Our thoughts have an impact on how we see the world, how we feel, and how we behave. Shifting our unhelpful patterns to include helpful thinking is important to help increase our confidence in coping with stressors, improve our mood, and reduce the intensity of our reactions.
Social support and connecting with others helps us feel a sense of belonging and reduces isolation that can occur when stressors increase. Building healthy social connections helps increase our confidence, overall effectiveness, and flexibility when handling life-changing events and problems.
The BRIDGES Society provides a safe environment with support services for people with mental health needs in the Hinton area.
Our vision is that BRIDGES upholds excellence in mental health and wellness in the Hinton community.
