CMHR and Clinical Psychology Supports a Community Family
Every year in November, the House of Friendship in Kitchener opens their Christmas Bureau, which is filled with many community families that need sponsors to assist in bringing them a wonderful holiday season.
Clinical Psychology has taken part in this tradition for a number of years. It is a wonderful way to give back to our community.
Organized by Dr. Elizabeth Nilsen, clinical faculty, graduate students, and staff from the Centre for Mental Health Research (CMHR) in the Department of Psychology gathered items for Refugee Relief Kits in lieu of exchanging gifts at their recent holiday party. Items for the Relief Kits included blankets and sheets, as well as soaps, shampoo, towels, combs, bandaids, etc.
