    Strengthening Families for the Future
    February 1, 2017
    Dear Parent/Guardian,

    Mental Health and Addictions, together with the Early Years Centre and Schools Plus, will be offering a program called Strengthening Families for the Future to families in the Yarmouth area. Strengthening Families for the Future is a prevention program for families with children between 7-11 years of age who may be having concerns around issues such as substance use, depression, and violence.

    Strengthening Families works because it includes the whole family. The program helps build parenting skills that can strengthen children’s resilience and lessen the chance of future substance use problems. For families that have taken the program in other places, it has helped:
    • Improve how the family works together 
    • Parents learn to better deal with anger 
    • Children learn to control their aggression 
    The weekly sessions will be about three hours and include:
    • Free supper for families 
    • Separate sessions for parents and children (one hour) 
    • A family session (one hour) 
    • Free onsite child care for children under seven or over eleven years 
    The program will be 11 weeks. The first session will be March 21st at the Early Years Centre in Yarmouth Central School (53 Parade Street), starting at 5:30pm.

    If you want to participate in the program, please complete the information below and give it to the person who approached you by Friday March 17th. If you have any questions or concerns about the program, feel free to call (902-749-0740) or email (larry.phillips@nsha.ca).
