Posted On Thursday August 15, 2019

This fall, Stony Plain Family and Community Support Services (Stony Plain FCSS), in partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association Edmonton (CMHA Edmonton), is bringing two Recovery College courses to our community. The first called 'The Art of Friendship' explores how to create and maintain healthy relationships. The second, called 'Building Better Boundaries' will help you communicate effectively about your boundaries and learn to respect the boundaries of others.

Everyone over the age of 16 years is welcome to attend – family, friends, caregivers, professionals and the general public are invited to these free courses on well-being. Recovery College courses are interactive and create positive learning experiences, emphasizing connection, hope and belonging.

According to Deanna Butz, Community Development Coordinator with Stony Plain FCSS, “The Art of Friendship and Building Better Boundaries Series provide education and build connection, resilience and compassion.”

The Art of Friendship series runs on Tuesday afternoons from September 17 to November 5 and The Building Better Boundaries series runs on Wednesday evenings from October 2 to October 23.
