Have you stopped feeling like yourself lately? Or maybe you're worried about someone you care about? Maybe you feel sad, empty and hopeless but don't know why you can't shake off the feelings? Maybe you want to look at how your drinking of alcohol or drug use patterns fits into the picture?....
There is another way to feel
The Beyond the Blues education and screening event can help you figure out the next step to feeling better and in control of your health. There is help and hope.
- Castlegar Campus October 10 from 10 to 1 p.m.
- Tenth St. – Mary Hall – 11:30 -1:00, Tuesday October 8th
- Silver King – Atrium/Cafeteria – 11:00-1:00, Wednesday October 9th
At an education and screening site, you can take part in activities to learn more about mood and anxiety problems, effective treatments, supports and self-care. You can also fill out short self-tests on well-being, depression, anxiety and risky drinking, talk privately with a clinician about next steps, and find out about resources and supports in your community.
The events are free, anonymous, confidential and walk-in. Anyone is welcome to attend—whether you want to fill out a self-test or not. If you do choose to a screening, they are completely free and totally anonymous.
There will be door prizes and giveaways.
This event is presented provincially by heretohelp. Provincial funding provided by the Provincial Health Services Authority, with additional support from the Ministry of Children and Family Development.
