THE NEXT DAY
Keep The Conversation Going..
Often we have awareness days where we talk about important things, but after the day is over we stop the conversation.
My hope with this page is to keep the conversation going, and to help link people to the local resourses they need.
Below are links to Mental Health services and support groups in both the Annapolis Valley and throughout the province.
This page is a work in progress.
Please email email@example.com with any missing links you think should be here.

Thereputic & Teaching Programs
We're looking for some help in the Coldbrook/Kentville/New Minas area.
Right now we're in the process of recruiting sponsors for our Walk the Walk for Autism event. The WALK, which takes place on Saturday, June 16th. in Kingston this year, is by far our largest fundraiser. The money raised via pledges, donations and sponsorships at the Walk is what allows us to keep the Autism Centre up and running. This event is what makes it possible for us to continue to provide programming and services for those with autism living in the Valley.
We are looking for some help with delivering Walk sponsorship packages to businesses and organizations from Coldbrook through to New Minas. If you are willing to drop off (and follow-up on) even two or three sponsorship packets we would really appreciate it. We can provide you with company names and addresses or, better yet, if you know of a potential sponsor(s) not on our radar you can help us expand our community connections.
If you can lend a hand, please comment below or contact Sandy at 902-242-2019 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank-you.
