Frances knew she needed support.
Struggling with depression, stress, and an overly ambitious school schedule as a mature student, the central Alberta resident decided to try one-on-one counselling.
However, when that didn’t pan out for Frances, her physician suggested group therapy.
“I liked the idea of being with other people and seeing their perspective,” explained Frances (not her real name).
She signed up for Alberta Anxiety to Calm through the Red Deer Primary Care Network (PCN), and joined several other participants in the program, which is facilitated by two psychologists.
