Coping With Wildfire Stress
August 10, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
Natural disasters like wildfires are recognized to have an immense impact on emotional health. That’s why CMHA Kelowna invites you to join us for a free community event aimed at helping people build resiliency and to find ways to safeguard and manage their mental health in the face of stressors associated with extreme weather and natural disasters.
Coping With Wildfire Stress is an educational event meant to help local citizens who have experienced or may expect a natural disaster. A presentation provided by CMHA Kelowna will include important topics such as mental health, trauma, resilience, coping strategies, disaster plans, supporting children and youth, and community resources.
Following the presentation, various community partners including Kelowna Community Resources, the Kelowna Library, Kelowna SPCA, Kelowna Fire Department, Emergency Support Services, and more will be running information booths and activities for all ages.
This is a family friendly event and we highly recommend that everyone that has been or could be affected by a natural disaster attend.
Funding for the talks is provided by the Province of BC.
