Recovery in the School System (Part 1 of 3)

This three-part special podcast series introduces an exciting collaboration between Our Collective Journey and Medicine Hat School Division.  Associate Superintendent Tracey Hensel and Director of Psychology Services Claire Petersen discuss how they came to see OCJ as a unique partner to collaborate with within Medicine Hat and surrounding area.  Tracey and Claire outline their vision of bringing Recovery Coaches into the schools, by having real life coaches available who can share their life experiences in an open, honest and vulnerable way in hopes of reaching students on their level thus allowing students, teachers and parents to see what recovery looks like through the lens of those who have recovered.  This pilot program is an exciting opportunity for an entire community to collectively come together in support the amazing students and to develop a new narrative around what is possible with recovery.

If there are any questions with regards to what Our Collective Journey is, what Recovery Coaching looks like or any other concerns please reach out to Tracey or Claire at Medicine Hat Public School Division 403-528-6700 or Our Collective Journey at, 403-800-1191 or Facebook Messenger.
