  • The FORCE Society For Kids’ Mental Health presentation

    The FORCE Society For Kids’ Mental Health presentation

    With Easter just around the corner, sun becoming our friend again and buds appearing in the gardens, The FORCE Society For Kids’ Mental Health will be offering a presentation to refresh on the importance of connectedness.  Holiday times are a great strategy to meet that need of inclusion.  This months’ webinar is about exactly that!

    Although young people become more peer-focused during the teen years, parents and caring adults still have an important role in their lives. Dr. Saewyc will share the recent results from the BC Adolescent Health Survey, and what nearly 30,000 students had to say about their mental health and the importance of connectedness to families, schools, and other caring adults.

    When: Wednesday April 16th (6:30 pm)

    Location: Brennan Park Recreation Centre – Garibaldi Room, 1009 Centennial Way

    Please RSVP to carolec@forcesociety.com

    The completed plan will outline policy directions and design guidelines to ensure that Downtown Squamish becomes a vibrant and healthy core of the community for commerce, culture, and creativity. Once completed, the DNP will become part of our Official Community Plan and help guide future decisions and projects in our Downtown over the long-term.
