SOS: A holistic approach to mental wellness
Second Opinion Society is a member-driven community of people working together to create positive change in themselves, in the mental health system, and in society. We are a drop-in centre where people can support each other through emotional distress or crisis and meet for social connection and healthy activities. We provide members and the public with information on mental health and wellness and help to support people in navigating mental health, legal, and governmental systems in Whitehorse. We emphasize a holistic approach to mental health, including healthy eating and physical activity, feeling connected to other people, and feeling connected to nature. We know that everyone has their own path of healing and wellness, which may include medical input, spiritual practice, cultural teachings, or any other activity or resource that they find helpful. At Second Opinion Society we support everyone's right to make fully informed decisions about their own mental health and aim to create and nurture a community where everyone is equal, respected, empowered to take ownership of their lives and encouraged to participate fully and with dignity in all aspects of community life.
