Hello everyone! My name is Jade, and I am one of the Outreach Educators with Envision Counselling & Support Centre Inc. Envision Counselling has been a part of the Southeast corner of Saskatchewan since 1994. Envision Counselling’s goal is to help individuals to live their healthiest, happiest lives. We provide counselling services to individuals, couples, families, and children who may be going through a tough time, and/or have experienced violence and abuse in their lives. Anyone who is looking for support can call one of our four office locations and speak with our trained intake worker. We have offices located in Weyburn, Estevan, Carlyle, and Oxbow.
Envision Counselling & Support Centre also offers in-home support to families. Family Support workers go into the homes of families and work with parents on various goals that are mutually decided on between the family and worker. These goals could include topics such as relationship building, create and maintain daily routines, budgeting, parenting skills, and so forth.
Lastly, Envision Counselling provides community education and awareness. We have been doing this through our ROAM project which stands for Rural Outreach Awareness Measures. Through this project, the main focus has been to provide information through presentations within the classroom of grades 7-10 on topic like unhealthy relationships, dating violence, types of abuse, and so on.
