Community Helpers Program

The Community Helpers Program aims to promote mental wellbeing and prevent suicide among youth ages 12-30 by supporting the natural helpers in our community.

Natural helpers are the good listeners in our community that others often turn to when they're struggling. 

Through various trainings, natural helpers:

  • Learn about various trainings and wellbeing
  • Learn about suicide prevention
  • Learn about other issues youth ages 12-30 are experiencing
  • Strengthen their helping skills and self-care skills
  • Learn about professional resources in the community

For current program offerings, please visit the Town Activity Guide at cochrane.ca/ProgramGuide or call 403-851-2250.
