Programs and services that enrich and strengthen family life by developing skills so people can function more effectively within their own environment
emotional safe spot
We believe everyone should have someone to talk to. Struggling socially or emotionally takes a toll, and knowing what to do next can be daunting. That's why all the FCSS staff have undergone extensive mental health related training to better serve the people of Wetaskiwin during these hard times.
The Emotional Safe Spot program is meant to provide a place for people in the community to share the mental health struggles they might be facing, in a confidential and safe space. We can also help you find the information that you need to improve or maintain your mental health. This service is not a formal or certified counseling or therapy service, but meant to be the “first step” in a person’s journey to better mental health.
Please, reach out to any of the FCSS staff if you need someone to talk to - that's what we're here for.
