New program to reduce stress in teens coming to the area
The Bulkley Valley Learning Centre is starting a new program to help youth deal with stress.
Vice Principal Stephen Lockwood says the objective is to celebrate wellness.
“The end goal is basically a healthier and happier community,” he says. “In our jobs, we see a lot of stress and anxiety in teens and preteens and we want to set up an activity that is fun, that is open to the community as well.”
The Strategies for Stress project will kick off in the new year.
Northern Health’s recent imagine grants helped make the program possible.
