SAIF's Group Programs

Our group programs include 1 day workshops to multiple week sessions. When possible, we do offer women identifying only groups as well as all gender groups. Most group programs are offered to adults (18+) unless otherwise indicated.  

 

Our programs are open to residents of St Albert, Sturgeon County & the surrounding areas. If you've experienced and/or witnessed family abuse, we're happy to talk with you about programming options. Please note: all group counselling programs are subject to an intake and informed consent process.

 

Please note: not everyone is ready for group programs. When you call or email us, we schedule an in person or phone intake, depending on the group topic and type. Group programs are FREE unless otherwise indicated.

 

If you are looking for immediate resources, please check out the Info & Resources tab. 

We accept referrals from other organizations, medical professionals as well as individuals calling on behalf of themselves or a loved one.
