As a close-knit community, we know many children, parents and community members are dealing with trauma, directly or indirectly related to the recent Humboldt Broncos tragedy. It is during these times that connections and support become increasingly important. While everyone reacts to and deals with traumatic events differently, please know Strathcona County’s professional support services are available for anyone who needs to talk.
No appointment is needed, and this is a “pay what you can afford” service (starting at $0). Services are available at various times, Monday through Friday. Visit www.strathcona.ca/counselling or call 780-464-4044 for more information. Attached is a poster sharing these services, for your use.
