Members of OCJ have gained experiential knowledge by personally navigating many dark, life experiences. These experiences give us an innate ability to connect with individuals experiencing similar situations, reassuring them that they are not alone. Systems are often at capacity leading to lengthy wait times or often the individual is not ready to seek professional support at all. This is where OCJ is able to take action, fill gaps, and immediately offer support on their journey. The OCJ -Recovery Coach program encompasses all of these.
*Although OCJ is here to support, we ARE NOT a crisis service. If you or someone you know is experiencing a crisis situation, please contact 911 or the Alberta Mental Health Help Line at 1-877-303-2642 (Toll free).
