Collective Care is a support group dedicated and open to the community of Mayne Island to anyone who may be facing any type of struggle, life transition, loss, or need respite. You can find us at the Mayne Island Community Centre on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month. Tracy Chernaske, a certified Expressive Arts Therapist, will lead our time together to explore life in the past, present, future and changing lives utilizing the arts.
Caregivers have the option of staying to create or they are welcome to use this time in another way. Volunteers will be present to provide some care and support if needed.
