The PLE2021 sessions will focus on four themes:

  1. THE POWER OF SELF COMPASSION – March 4
  2. SHIFTING SCREEN HABITS – March 11
  3. NATURE… A PLAYGROUND FOR ALL CHILDREN – March 18
  4. BELONGING TO THE VILLAGE – March 25

Being a parent of a young person with substance use challenges is hard. What do I do? What can I say? How can I make them stop? These are all things that many parents ask themselves. This presentation is a facilitated discussion to help share some practical ways to move through the challenges.  ‘in the know’

We are now accepting registrations for our March Help for the Hard Times workshop.

This workshop is for Fraser families and caregivers whose child or youth has been a patient at Surrey Hospital’s CAPSU or APU, space may be available for other Fraser families who have had an inpatient stay at another hospital or repeated hospital emergency room visits.

Help for the Hard Times workshops are facilitated by the Parents in Residence at CAPSU. The workshops are hosted online and include a one-on-one video conference or phone call with a Facilitator.

We are hosting a Daytime and Evening Workshop Series for Fraser families in March.
