Stories of our community involvement
The Local Counselling Card (TLCC for short!) is a labour of love between us The Local Gift Card, William & Associates Counselling Services

The passion to break down barriers when it comes to mental health and illness is something we all feel.

The passion to serve and provide for our local community is also something we feel greatly.

So we married them together. Access to counselling with one simple card - grab yours for a friend, family member, yourself .. and let's #endthestigma when it comes to talking about our mental wellbeing and getting support!

Purchasing TLCC can be done through www.counsellingcard.com

If you offer low fee counselling services or want to sponsor TLCC send us an email at info@youarecollective.ca for more info!
Maybe this applies to you and maybe it doesn't ๐Ÿคท โฃ
โฃ
But we can pretty much guarantee it applies to someone in your life. So let's all be aware of it ๐Ÿ˜œโฃ
โฃ
These can seem like simple tasks to some. A no-brainer and routine to-do.โฃ
โฃ
For some, these can be the things that are triggering. The very idea of it instantly gets overcomplicated and it can send you into a spiral.โฃ
โฃ
We feel you. You are not alone.โฃ

For example, the inspiration for this reminder comes from realizing it was the weekend and I only had two pills + no refills left ... because I had procrastinated/been distracted from making a doctor's appointment. And no, I don't manage to take my pills at the same time every day. โฃThis is life ๐Ÿคท
โฃ
So instead of us hiding these challenges and experiences, we wanted to share with you in hopes of empowering you on your mental health journey ~ we're rooting for you all the way!! ๐Ÿ–ค

We've officially made it to #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth โœจ๐Ÿ–คโฃ
โฃ
Even though yes, to us, every month is about raising awareness, keeping the conversation going, creating safe spaces, and ending the stigma.โฃ
โฃ
We're not going to pretend it's been all sunshine + rainbows - navigating these extraordinary times has been challenging, frustrating, and disappointing amidst the silver linings.โฃ
โฃ
We had so many things planned that had to be shifted or cancelled; events in the works with incredible initiatives + humans to give mental health the attention and celebration it deserves ๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸŽ‰โฃ
โฃ
Fortunately - there's this thing called the internet. And all of these really rad people who have been down for change + working around how we can still provide for the community during all of this.โฃ
โฃ
So have no fear .. the #mentalhealth celebration is coming. The events will still happen. But this time you'll get to enjoy them from the comfort of your own safe space ๐Ÿกโฃ
โฃ
Stay tuned for upcoming workshops, Instagram lives, blogs, new resources and so much more ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™Œ
We asked: What Makes You An Ally?โฃ
โฃ
Here were a few responses...โฃ
โฃ
๐Ÿ‘ฅ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ "To me, being an #ALLY is standing up for your friends/family when they can't. But also stepping back and letting their voices be heard."โฃ
โฃ
๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ "Being an #ALLY means using my privilege to advocate for marginalized groups."โฃ
โฃ
๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿ™†โ€โ™‚๏ธ"Being an #ALLY means creating an inclusive community where all are welcome, heard, and seen."โฃ
โฃ
๐Ÿก๐Ÿ‘ซ"Being an #ALLY is being a safe place for everyone. We work hard to make our home safe for anyone."โฃ
