How do you get in to the program?

You can self-refer by calling 587-796-0765 OR obtain a referral from your Peaks to Prairies PCN family doctor.

When you self-refer consider having a friend register with you as this can provide support for positive change.

If you are already seeing a P2P PCN nurse, social worker, mental health counsellor, or exercise specialist you can ask them about a referral.

Your commitment:

Weekly homework provides you the opportunity to practice the skills and take control of your personal state of happiness.

This is not therapy or counseling.

There is no expectation for you to share and talk about your past.
