“Ask Euan" - Contributor Euan Tait presents a new monthly column on embassyculturalhouse.ca!
As the pandemic continues into a third year, in the midst of multiple global, political and social crises, the Embassy Cultural House recognizes the deep importance of mental health and wellness at this time. In collaboration with Euan Tait, a candidate in MA Counselling Psychology at Western University, our local international ECH community are encouraged to write to Euan for advice:
