A COMPASSIONATE COMMUNITY OF SUPPORT
Healing to The Max is a therapeutic intensive program specially designed to support:
Parents, Guardians and Grandparents & Youth and Teen Survivors of a traumatic loss by suicide through the lens of Narrative Therapy.
Since our inception, we have expanded to include a continuous monthly Men's Only group program, an ongoing monthly program for all types of survivors and we are in the process of developing in-person support programs for our Northern Communities here in Saskatchewan.
Healing to The Max is modern and effective grief support for anyone who's experienced a tragic loss by suicide.

This is a dynamic interactive presentation on suicide prevention especially designed for students, teachers, and support staff in high schools across Canada.
On Average, we lose 11 Canadians each day by suicide. Still, tragically 200 more will attempt suicide every day. Saskatchewan has the highest suicide rate in the entire country.
Now is the time to take action on opening the dialog with our youth and education providers so we may all work together to reduce the stigmas around mental health and provide support to those who may be silently suffering.
Gone Away Ones is an uplifting and empowering experience, which will equip participants with:
~ A working knowledge on how to recognize signs of suicidal ideation in themselves, or in those they care about.
~ A list of resources accessible on an app on a phone.
~ Coping techniques to help support themselves or someone they care about through a mental health crisis.
After losing our beloved 16 year old son and brother Max, by suicide in the early spring of 2015, we found there was a gap in support services for families like our own.
We began with the goal of designing support programs for parents, guardians and grandparents, as well as, for youth and teens.
Join our educational online therapeutic programs, online support groups, and in-person healing retreats designed as support services to offer community, grief management, awareness, education and a space to heal and connect with others experiencing the devastating loss of a loved one by suicide.
