Stronger Together – Surrey
March 5-9, 2019
** We’ve rescheduled these sessions as a result of anticipated poor weather. Please see new dates and times below. **
Stronger Together is a series of dialogue and learning sessions for families and allies impacted by substance use. We will explore systemic barriers to family support, share promising practices, and brainstorm solutions. We will learn from each other’s experiences, successes, and challenges. Community knowledge will be documented and used to inform substance use service planning, as well as research directions, in your community and province. For more information on what the sessions entail, visit www.bccsu.ca/Stronger-Together.
