We are already seeing the advantages of offering so much of our education not just in our classrooms,in downtown Red Deer, but simultaneously over Zoom. In general our one hour stand alone classes are on-line only over Zoom. Our support groups and multi-session programming takes place simultaneously live at the CMHA Learning Centre and virtually. If it’s minus 30, our in person classes will be cancelled and we will send everyone a Zoom link over email. Unfortunately, the increase in Covid cases in our community means that in clasroom education is on hold for now.
This month we are pleased to offer a variety of programs,of different lengths, of special interest to family members/caregivers.
