Bishop’s ­Psychology Department exploring ­offering ­services to the community

Last Friday evening Students and Faculty of the Bishop’s University Psychology Department hosted a gathering at Uplands Cultural and Heritage Centre in Lennoxville to test the local English community’s interest in the creation of a new mental health and wellbeing centre. With representatives of a range of local community organizations, Federal, Provincial, and Municipal Governments, and the University in attendance, members of the team proposing the new project pitched their vision of how Bishop’s could start offering improved access to mental health services in the region.
“The idea would be to offer some professional mental health services at a reduced cost within a centre which would also be a meeting place where educational workshops, discussion groups of various sorts, relaxation and art-based sessions, etc., are offered free of charge,” explained Psychology Professor Dr. Claude Charpentier.
