Anonymous Group Support

We aim to bring support to the well-being of our community.  During these challenging times of COVID we recognize and acknowledge the impact it has had on all of us; we hope to support you through community connection with psychoeducational support to discuss and explore coping strategies for various issues such as depression and anxiety.   

Let us show our support for each other towards a healthy state of mind in our communities.  Our sessions will be educational and reflective; all communication from participants in the group will be anonymous and directed for response by our trained professionals. 

Couples and Family Counselling

Presently, we are providing Couples and Family Counselling on a short-term basis. Contact Yellowhead Community Services at 250-674-2600 or info@yellowheadcs.ca  for an Intake Package.

Due to Covid-19 and with additional funding received from The Community Action Initiative, we are able to provide flexible counselling options to meet the needs in the community, especially for those who are most vulnerable due to health concerns or are experiencing transportation challenges.  While in-person services are available, we are also able to offer individual and group virtual services through an approved telehealth platform and telephone counselling.  If access to a phone, long distance plan/internet or technology is a barrier to receiving services, please contact the program manager at the number listed below as we can assist you in this area.
