LGBT Youth Connection Offering More Summer Programs at CHIGAMIK
LGBT youth of Midland and surrounding areas are taking part in fun and engaging activities this summer at the LGBT Youth Connection located at CSC CHIGAMIK CHC.
In addition to the weekly drop-ins, the group is also holding special events for youth over the summer months, which include group bowling, soap sculpting and group picnics.

Katie Mobbs, Family and Youth Program Coordinator at the Gilbert Centre says “our goal is to make the group a place for LGBT youth to connect with each other and their community. By offering fun events throughout the summer months, we really hope our youth can use the group not only as a social space and safe haven, but a place to build confidence, feel energized, have fun and above all, be themselves!” For more information about the LGBT Youth Connection program, click here.

Traditional Healer Pam Tremblay, talks about healing through creativity
CSC CHIGAMIK CHC’s Aboriginal Traditional Healers understand that sickness begins in spirit, and impacts one’s mind, emotions, and body. The healers use traditional Aboriginal approaches to bring about wellness. Through culture and traditional healing methods, healers strive to help individuals achieve balance, harmony, and good health. 
One such healer is Pam Tremblay who often uses art and creativity as the focus of her healing.  “For me, as a Métis healer, everything is always coming from a place of creativity. When a person asks for help, they have to be open to the creative process and want to be part of creating the healing experience,” says Pam. Read more
