Community Talks


We have started a new service for the West Carleton Community. We are offering Community Talks on matters that are of general interest. Our first attempt utilized our own Dr. Jacqui Antonio who is a Certified Psychologist. It was a big hit for the people who came for her Saturday morning session on “Women and Depression”. She covered the biological and social causes of depression and helpful preventative measures.
