A community survey indicated that although there are many services and resources available in Claresholm, community members are still experiencing feelings of isolation. To combat the isolation among community members, this project will host a series of drumming circles. The drumming circles will allow participants to feel connected with others while also reducing tension, stress, and anxiety. Community members will be involved at different stages in the design, planning, and implementation.

Impact/Outcomes

Circles provided community members with a way to de-stress safety and within guidelines during the COVID19 Pandemic. Community relationships were nurtured & growth among community individuals. Each circle opened with a discussion around mental health and overall well-being, throughout the eight sessions we noticed an increase understanding of what health, mental health and mental well-being are and what is involved.
