Wildfire Recovery – Building Resiliency in our Community
Everyone in the Central Cariboo Chilcotin region has been affected in some way by the 2017 wildfires. As summer approaches our region, many of us are experiencing unique concerns and reactions to the spring flooding and uncertainty of the 2018 wildfire season.
It is known, that the more relevant and timely information people have access to, the more they feel in control of their lives and the better they can manage their own mental wellness and the wellness of their families.
As people’s concerns and interests are variable and individually unique, the events posted under our ‘Wildfire Recovery’ heading may not be of interested to everyone, please share with those who may need the extra support. All events are free of charge and open to everyone.
Should you have any further questions or concerns please call Student Support Services at 250-398-3851.
