The Family School Wellness Program is an important part of our healthy Chinook’s Edge school community. We work to provide a variety of supports and resources to students and families throughout our school division. Our focus is on providing support to children and families facing social, emotional or family challenges. This may include parenting support, short-term student-focused individual or family support, small group sessions to build student skills, preventative programming within our schools, or referral for further services as required.

Family School Wellness Workers in Chinook’s Edge share strong connections with community partners and can assist families in finding information, resources or specialized services with community-based programs. A significant role for our Family School Wellness Program is to grow and maintain relationships between parents and schools, and community and schools.

Students can access our program directly with the Family Wellness Worker in their school, or be referred by family. Our program requires parental/guardian consent and your involvement matters! Our program is family-focused.

For more information about our free and confidential services, and to discuss how our Family School Wellness Program can support your child, please contact the Family School Wellness Worker in your child’s school.
