Recovering from Natural Disasters

Please join the Addiction and Mental Health teams from Alberta Health Services for a community information session!

We will be coming to the communities of Wildwood, Peers and Marlboro to provide support related to the wildfires, evacuations and floods this summer.  We will begin each session with about a one-hour presentation related to loss and grief and the stress response.  We will provide information about typical stress responses, and indicators that further support may be needed.  After the information session, the therapists will stay to answer questions and meet individually with folks as they wish.

If you are wondering about your own coping, or concerned about friends or loved ones, or simply looking for a safe space to connect with neighbors about the events of the last summer, this is for you!
