Maintaining Health: Staying Strong
This program runs on the third Thursday of each month. Registration is open year-round to anyone who has previously completed a Landing Strong group program.
Stay connected with your community, and stay healthy long-term with this year-round resilience building group.
March 17th – please note this session has been moved to Friday for this month only.
Call (902) 472-2972 or email Julie to sign up for any upcoming program day.
Overcoming Trauma: Your past is not your future
This group helps to calm an overtaxed central nervous system.
Avoiding traumatic memories and situations that trigger PTSD symptoms prolongs injury and limits recovery from these experiences. Working together as a supportive group, we will reprocess traumatic events, allowing natural recovery to happen.
The peer support offered in this group approach is particularly helpful in addressing moral injuries.
Upcoming program (in-person):
Friday group: March 24, 31 & April 14, 21, 28
Wednesday group: March 29, April 5, 12, 26, May 3
Healthy Living: Live a life that reflects who you are
This new program is designed for veterans, first responders, and those who were exposed to trauma in their work who are feeling the effects of these experiences.
Bring your authentic self back into your life in a natural & real way. Reconnect with your values and integrate them in all areas of your life. When we find balance on the inside, the rest will come together.
All-women’s group: May 26, June 2, 9, 16, 23
Co-ed group: May 24, 31, June 7, 14, 21

Identity & Transition: Build a life beyond the uniform
