The Tree of Life and Courage is a website for both clients and clinicians.
The website offers workshops to improve skills and knowledge in many different areas of mental health, to live a healthy lifestyle and improve well being.
The website is for individuals seeking to rebuild their lives after a traumatic event, coming to terms with grief and loss or caregivers dealing with family members with dementia. The workshops are organized as group sessions to discuss recovery through personal strengths and clinical interventions.
