At Thrive Learning Centre we offer free, informative courses, addressing topics related to mental health, physical health, building your best life, finding your voice, increasing skills and connecting to community.

Our courses are designed through the lens of honoring those with lived experience of mental illness. We believe that through one’s own personal journey, meaning and purpose are created, resulting in rich knowledge. That is why we make every effort to design courses keeping the perspective in mind of those with professional experience as well as people with lived experience of mental illness.
