Health Basics

​​Past Participants quotes:

"I'm competing against myself…challenging myself to go that extra, rather than comparing myself to others".

"I have a 'proud moment's calendar' for myself that I put on things each day that I'm proud of…then I can look back on it when I'm discouraged."

How do you get in to the program?

You can self-refer by calling 403.343.9100 and speak with a Triage Nurse OR obtain a referral from your RDPCN family doctor.

When you self-refer consider having a friend registered with you as this can provide support for positive change.

If you are already seeing a RDPCN nurse, psychologist, mental health counsellor, recreation therapist or pharmacist you can ask them about a referral.

Your commitment:

Your participation and energy focused on positive change
