Creative Centre Society operates a Young Adults program that runs every Thursday night for adults living with a severe and persistent mental illness, between the ages of 19 and 31. The Young Adults program serves four communities: Mission, Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Hope. The program is designed to incorporate a variety of activities and outings, with the end goal of: increasing self esteem and confidence, decreasing anxieties in group settings, and learning essential communication and living skills.
There are two components within the Young Adults program, “Giving Back” to our community though volunteer opportunities, and “Recreation Activities”. Each evening staff facilitates a group session where personal goal planning is discussed. In addition to this, one on one appointments are also available with staff, if they do not wish to share in a group setting, although it is encouraged.
