Client, Family and Community Education and Support

Knowledge is a powerful thing!


Education helps us to better understand our physical, mental and emotional health.


When we understand how the body works, how to live a healthier lifestyle, and how to recognize when illness is occurring, we are better at managing our health and wellness.


Being able to identify the things that are causing us stress and when that stress is causing negative effects on our health, we can learn ways to manage it, and be more successful at maintaining our overall health and well-being.
