Theatre Nova Scotia is partnering with Air Institutes to bring our members free mental fitness & resilience learning opportunities. Free access to these sessions would not have been possible without the generous support of two anonymous donors and funding from the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia.


We know the constant uncertainty of the pandemic has taken a toll on the mental health of our members and the industry at large. We are pleased to be offering the following mental health resilience training opportunities. 


Foundations of Resilience Series

A simple, yet comprehensive introduction to resilience training. This Series is comprised of four 90-minute live sessions, with online library access for review. Before registering, please know that this is a four-part course and your commitment will be for all the sessions. Learn more about this series.

1. SeeFit - Establishing a Resilience Mindset

Cultivating a growth mindset is necessary to thrive during stressful times. We introduce the Be Fit framework, the four mental muscle groups, and key resilience skills.

2. ThinkFit - Developing Mental Discipline

Stress is a fact of life. This session explores common manifestations of stress and elucidates how fear can be leveraged to manage stress in positive and adaptive ways.

3. FeelFit - Making Sense of Emotions

We will uncover key insights into the role emotions play in our lives and the importance of harnessing that energy to motivate positive growth and development.

4. ActFit - Forging Strong Relationships

Stress need not damage relationships; collective resilience can be built through commitment, compassion and understanding, forging invaluable connections that mutually protect.
