Welcome to  Chimo Helpline's January 2017 newsletter.
This is a place where we will share updates, community events and important information regarding mental health and suicide prevention. 
With the start of a New Year, consider adding self care to your list of resolutions.  Self care is about identifying your own needs and taking steps to meet them.  It is making time to do something that nurtures yourself. Self care has shown to increase positive thinking and less susceptible to stress, depression and anxiety.   When you avoid things that make you feel physically and mentally well, you can risk impacting your confidence and self-esteem.  

Self Care Ideas for the New Year
  • Read a favourite book or watch a favourite movie
  • Exercise/play sports/stretch
  • Unplug
  • Keep a journal
  • Take a class
  • Nap
  • Create/colour/build/design
  • Meditate
  • De-clutter/organize
  • Volunteer
  • Soak in hot bath
  • Meet a friend for coffee

A Wonderful Surprise!

For the past three years, Chimo has experienced a 20% annual increase in call volume.    As the demand for our service rises we need to find solutions to meet that need.  Through the generosity of The Co-operators Foundation, their $10,000 donation will cover the costs of adding additional phone Interveners for the next year.  The funds will greatly increase our capacity to answer calls.
In 2015, The Co-operators contributed a total of $5,807,106 to various initiatives that support communities.   Through their Foundation, they generously provide funding opportunities through several programs: Corporate Giving Program, Community Economic Development Fund, Co-operative Development Program and the IMPACT! Fund.

Their commitment towards creating safer, healthier and more resilient communities is proven through their history of support to the United Way, helping social enterprises, co-operatives, charities and non-profit organizations across Canada.  Their team can be counted on to take action, provide support and raise awareness where needed.  Their dedication assists organizations develop sustainable practices, benefits disadvantaged Canadians move towards self-reliance, supports co-operatives and youth leadership programs.

We are grateful to The Co-operators Foundation for placing value and importance towards supporting mental health programs and services.
