Partnering to Support Mental Health

Through funding from the Alberta Government, Pembina Hills has partnered with the Barrhead Association for Community Living and the Barrhead Anglican Church to create Together Talk — an initiative to support mental health concerns related to the pandemic. Together Talk will focus on providing on-site and virtual counselling, as well as group activities to promote mental well-being.

Their goal is to provide extra support to local communities and help bridge the gap between existing services such as local FCSS services, physicians, AHS addictions and mental health services. Read more at www.togethertalk.ca.

The next school board meeting is at the Regional Office on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 starting at 9:00 a.m. Members of the public are invited to view a livestream of the meeting on our website.
