In addition to supporting students, mental health therapists work with their family, community, and teachers to help them better understand children who have gone through trauma. This includes educating the community about the impact of trauma on the developing brain. We believe reaching children and youth while they are in school is the best way to encourage future success.
Mental health therapists provide a combination of counselling and group work, customized for the child and their family. They work collaboratively with other service providers in a ‘circle of support’ model for children and their families.
There is no cost to families.
The Family Centre acknowledges that we are on Treaty 6 territory, a traditional meeting ground, gathering place, and traveling route for the Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Métis, Dene, and Nakota Sioux. We acknowledge all the many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries.
