Event description
All Albertans are impacted by domestic violence in our communities, this is an issue that is too big to be ignored.

About this event

Supporting someone experiencing or using abuse can be emotionally and mentally exhausting.

This is a drop-in session that will provide an open format for informal and formal supporters to talk to Sagesse facilitators and others about their experiences of supporting people and the challenges that can come with it such as knowing what to say, setting boundaries, comfort in supporting people and the importance of self-care. Feel free to drop in at any point of this session to ask a question, or stay for the entire time to have conversations with other informal supporters.

This casual setting will allow individuals to come together to discuss experiences, ask questions, and provide you with encouragement, assistance, and relief.


Stand By will be offered on a biweekly basis on Wednesday evenings. You can sign up for all of the Stand By Programs or just for an individual session.


Although this is a drop in session, you must first complete confidentiality forms, so registration is required. Once you have registered for Stand By, you can drop in at any session.
