Have you ever experienced abuse? Has your mental or physical health been affected as a result of abuse?

If your answer is yes, then there is a support group in Fort St. James waiting for you.

All women are welcome.

The program is being hosted by the Fireweed Safe Haven in Fort St. James.

Fireweed’s house manager, Talia Wyssen is looking forward to another successful program.

“We’ve already had one successful experience and we are looking forward to another,” Wyssen said. “Women who experience violence are often confronted with mental health issues and addiction. These are things that often follow.”

“We are hoping that women come and are able to gain some meaningful relationships and connections.”

The 16 week program begins on March 8 at 1pm at 477 Stuart Drive W., in the District Office basement.

Coffee, tea and snacks will be served and if you require transportation, it can be arranged.

For more information or if you would like to take part in the support group contact: Talia at: (250) 996-8081 or Pearl at (250) 996-1214.
