​4 weeks: 2 hour group sessions (check availablity)

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:

Weekly homework provides you the opportunity to practice the skills and take control of your personal state of happiness.

This is not therapy or counseling.

There is no expectation for you to share and talk about your past.
