Organization Information

Discovery College is a program of CMHA Kelowna providing free educational courses for people of all ages to learn skills to enhance their wellbeing. All courses are co-created and co-facilitated between staff and people with lived experience of the course topic. We hope there may be a combination of in-person and virtual courses offered by April 2021; all sessions are currently virtual.

A stable internet connection is required. Candidates are encouraged to let us know if there are any further technological barriers to participation and we will accommodate if possible.
