Meet Singles and Avoid One-on-One Awkwardness with dinnerworks.ca

Meet Singles and Avoid One-on-One Awkwardness with dinnerworks.ca










(PRWEB) November 9, 2004

Singles in Toronto, Ottawa, and Vancouver now have a new way to meet one another. dinnerworks.ca offers an exciting networking opportunity with the chance to meet singles who share a common interest.

The dinnerworks.ca process provides an atmosphere in which relationships most easily flourish – over dinner. Whether looking to make business contacts, friends, or meet singles, a casual meal can nourish a budding relationship.

“I care a lot about the people that I deal with,” said Susan Kates, owner of dinnerworks.ca. “I think that’s what sets me apart from any other service out there.”

Not a typical dating service, dinnerworks.ca reduces the awkwardness of one-on-one blind dates by setting up a casual dining experience with a group of four men and four women. By introducing individuals with similar interests and ages, the chance to meet singles and build relationships becomes greater.

The dinners are held at popular casual restaurants, chosen for ambiance, location, price range, and cuisine. The dinnerworks.ca host welcomes and introduces each of the eight participants, then leaves the evening open for possibilities. Each diner pays their own check, reducing that last-minute awkwardness at the end of the evening.

Tanya from Toronto said about her dinnerworks.ca experience: “I attended my first dinner last night and was fortunate to meet some really wonderful people. I made a new girlfriend and have a possible date with one of the guys.”

For those looking to meet singles in the Toronto, Vancouver, or Ottawa areas, visit http://www.dinnerworks.ca and fill out a free confidential questionnaire. dinnerworks.ca will contact those interested within a week with a dinner date specifically chosen for them.

About dinnerworks.ca:

For four years, dinnerworks.ca has been in the business of providing an opportunity for people seeking to meet singles in the Vancouver, Ottawa, and Toronto areas. Owned and operated by Susan Kates, the company is looking to expand their services of helping singles meet singles into other cities.

Emergency Grants and Mental Health First Aid Training Available to Meet Mental Health Needs after Haiti Earthquake

Emergency Grants and Mental Health First Aid Training Available to Meet Mental Health Needs after Haiti Earthquake











Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 19, 2010

The National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare (National Council) is offering small emergency grants and free Mental Health First Aid training to support mental health efforts in the wake of the devastating Haiti earthquake.

“Our thoughts are with the people of Haiti and with their loved ones in the U.S. We commend the efforts of many agencies and individuals that are providing disaster relief. Our pockets are not deep but we are standing by to help in any way we can,” Linda Rosenberg, president and CEO of the National Council said.

Through its Project Helping Hands, the National Council offers small grants to organizations working to meet the mental health needs of Haitian survivors and loved ones in the U.S. Since 2005, Project Helping Hands has supported behavioral healthcare organizations responding to emergency mental health and addictions treatment needs in the wake of disaster — hiring treatment staff, setting up emergency outreach offices, and purchasing medications and emergency equipment.

It is estimated that up to 25 to 30 percent of people in the most vulnerable communities experience the onset of trauma and mental disorders in the wake of disaster. These needs usually manifest several weeks to months after a disaster, as the reality of loss and displacement sinks in. Those with pre-existing serious mental illnesses may be traumatized anew or displaced and need extra care and support.

Haitian populations in the U.S., concerned about the safety and whereabouts of any loved ones in Haiti, may also be experiencing acute anxiety and stress reactions. Further, it is likely that the U.S. will see a significant influx of surviving Haitians over the coming months and a good number will likely experience mental health issues, in addition to the challenges of settling into a new culture.

Free Mental Health First Aid USA (http://www.MentalHealthFirstAid.org) training is available for volunteers headed to help in Haiti in the coming months and for community groups and caring citizens working with Haitian populations in the U.S.

Mental Health First Aid USA — a collaboration of the National Council, the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and the Missouri Department of Mental Health — equips members of the public with skills and resources to help someone developing a mental health problem or save someone experiencing a mental health crisis. Those trained in Mental Health First Aid can recognize the risk factors and warning signs of mental illness and connect persons in need with appropriate professional or other help, including peer and family support.

Those who wish to support the Haiti disaster mental health response may donate to the National Council’s Project Helping Hands at http://www.thenationalcouncil.org/cs/project_helping_hands.

The National Council is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) association of 1,700 behavioral healthcare organizations that provide treatment and rehabilitation for mental illnesses and addictions disorders to nearly six million adults, children and families in communities across the country.
