Self-care tool kit

The Opportunity Project has partnered with a group of psychology students from Cape Breton University to develop a Self-Care Tool Kit 

"The goal of this project is to provide a universal

self-care toolkit and workshop that can be moulded to any audience and is accessible to the public through organizations and online.

Our inspiration comes from the significance self-care plays in mental and physical wellness and the lack of generalized resources available."
