For many of us, the holiday season can be tough. Family, relationship and emotional well-being challenges can be at their most severe during this time, and many of us suffer alone and in silence.
The You Are Not Alone (YANA) awareness event is designed to for individuals within our community who might benefit from additional support throughout the holidays. The event is free to attend, and will provide opportunities to meet new people, talk and share experiences, have fun, and socialise in a relaxed and informal environment.
Whether you join for 10 minutes, part of the day, or all day, you can take part in one or as many of a range of fun activities, including;
- Talking with people who know what you’re going through;
- Card and/or board games indoors;
- Skating, snowshoeing, or cross country skiing (self-funded);
- Dinner at a Canmore restaurant (self-funded).
