World Suicide Prevention Day

September 10 is World Suicide Prevention Day, a day about increasing awareness, building knowledge and sparking conversations about suicide.

Suicide affects people from all ages, genders, socioeconomic, cultural and ethnic groups, and it has emotional, financial and psychological impacts on individuals, families, and communities.

You can help prevent suicide.

One of the major ways to help is to reduce the stigma around suicide. Stigma contributes to feelings of fear, shame and guilt. We can help decrease stigma by talking about suicide with understanding and compassion.

When talking about suicide, use people-first language (someone with suicidal thoughts instead of a suicidal person). Phrases such as death by suicide, died by suicide, or suicide describe what really happened and respect family and friends left behind.

It is hard to know if someone is thinking about suicide, but if you are or know someone who is, help is available. Recognizing the risk factors and warning signs is important in preventing suicide.

Risk factors may include:

• Barriers to accessing social and health services.

• Mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder.

• Traumatic life events such as the death of a partner or friend, divorce or financial issues.

• Family violence, including physical or sexual abuse.

• Diagnosis of a serious physical illness.

Warning signs may include:

• Planning or saying they want to hurt or kill themselves or someone else.

• Talking, writing, reading, or drawing about death, including writing suicide notes and talking about items that can cause physical harm, such as pills, guns or knives.

• Saying they have no hope, they feel trapped, or there is no point in “going on.”

Take any mention of suicide seriously, and get help right away if someone

you know is in immediate risk of suicide:

• Call 911, a suicide hotline (see telephone numbers below) or the police.

• Stay with the person or ask someone you trust to stay with the person until the crisis has passed.

• Encourage the person to seek professional help.

• Don’t argue with the person (“It’s not as bad as you think”) or challenge the person (“You’re not the type to attempt suicide”).

• Tell the person that you are there to support them. Talk about the situation as openly as possible.

When thinking about how to help someone, use the REACH Pathway (Recognize, Engage, Ask, Connect and Heal) to help remember what you can do: recognize when someone is struggling, engage in conversation and listen, ask about suicidal thoughts and feelings, connect to support and resources and take care of your own mental health.

August 2023 Vulcan County Family Resources

Hi Everyone,
I hope you have been having a good summer. There is still lots of community fun to be had in August and hopefully you have some time to explore some of the smaller communities and their events around Vulcan. At the bottom of the email I also included a list of some of the parks and places to explore outdoors in our County. For example, did you know there is a easy mountain bike trail through Wyndham Provincial Park? It’s a nice place to enjoy the river, paddle, have a picnic or ride bikes. And a Nature Trail to explore in Carmangay. Check out more below. Please share this email, post or print with friends, family and clients.
A couple heads up on warnings around us:

-Twin Valley Reservoir has a Blue-Green algae advisory in effect as well as Enchant Municipal Park. Learn more here https://www.albertahealthservices.ca/news/page1926.aspx

-Due to the extreme hot, dry conditions that exist, and with little to no precipitation in the forecast, a FIRE BAN is now in effect for Vulcan County with respect to all open fires within its municipal boundaries.

All active fire/burn permits are cancelled, and no new permits will be issued until further notice. Burning of any kind is prohibited, including recreational fires. Burning or lighting a fire during a Fire Ban is illegal, and fines and/or cost of fire departments to respond will apply. Please report any smoke sightings or fires immediately to 911. Look up regulations within each municipality and campground before having a fire.

Wildfire smoke and your health  – Content provided by: Alberta Health Services

 

When wildfire smoke enters a community, it can cause problems for the people who live there. Smoke contains small particles, which are a big health risk. These particles can get in your eyes, breathing (respiratory) system, and bloodstream. They can cause:

  • burning eyes
  • a runny nose
  • coughing
  • trouble breathing or illnesses such as bronchitis.

 

If smoke is a problem where I live, what can I do to lower my health risk?

Stay inside as much as possible and keep all windows and doors closed. Here’s what else you can do to keep your indoor air clean:

  • Close fresh air intakes from furnaces, fireplaces, or stoves.
  • If you have air conditioning, turn it on and set it to recirculate. Keep it running to help filter the air and keep your family cool. (Just remember that some air conditioning systems don’t filter the air or improve indoor air quality.)
  • If you have room air cleaners with high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters, turn them on. Don’t use air cleaners that may produce ozone. For portable air cleaners, follow all the manufacturer’s instructions for changing the filter, where to place the device, and the size of room it’s meant to be used in.
  • Use humidifiers, which may remove some of the smoke. The humid air can also help keep your nose and mouth moist.
  • Don’t use wood stoves, gas stoves, or candles because they make the indoor air quality worse. If you can, prepare foods that you don’t have to cook. Cooking (especially frying and broiling) can affect the air quality in your home.
  • Don’t use spray air fresheners or electric fragrance dispensers because they can affect air quality.
  • Don’t vacuum because it stirs up particles that are already inside your home.
  • Don’t let anyone smoke, vape, or use e-cigarettes in your home.

 

 

Prevent the risk of strokes  – Content provided by: Alberta Health Services

 

June is Stroke Awareness Month in Canada.

Risk factors such as high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, high cholesterol, physical inactivity, age, family history and more put you at a higher risk of experiencing a stroke.

 

What is a stroke?

A stroke occurs when a blood vessel in the brain bursts or is blocked. Without blood and the oxygen it carries, part of the brain starts to die. The part of the body controlled by the damaged area of the brain can’t work properly.

Symptoms of a stroke happen quickly and brain damage can begin within minutes. Quick treatment can help limit damage to the brain and increase the chance of a full recovery.

The acronym FAST is a simple way to remember the main symptoms of stroke. FAST stands for:

  • Face – Is it drooping?
  • Arms – Can you raise both?
  • Speech – Is it slurred or jumbled?
  • Time – Call 911 immediately.

 

If you have any of these symptoms, even if they go away quickly, call 911 or other emergency services right away. A stroke can’t be self-managed at home. To learn more www.ahs.ca/heartandstroke

How can I identify my risk for stroke?

Knowing your personal risk can help you act to lower your risk.

 

 

Creating moments of joy – Content from https://blog.ab.bluecross.ca/wellness/prioritize-your-wellness-by-inspiring-joy/

 

Research shows that people who pursue joy display more resilience to stress and trauma, have more friends and social support, have stronger immune systems and are physically healthier. Building relationships, helping communities and connecting with others improves our wellbeing on many levels.

Finding joy doesn’t need to cost money. While donating money to charity or surprising a friend with flowers are options, there are many ways to find joy. Some options include living mindfully, spending time building valuable relationships, being a mentor or role model, or volunteering with local organizations.

Inspire moments of joy with the following:

Pause and reflect on how you create joy in your life. Write down what you’re grateful for and highlight meaningful connections in your life. Find charities or organizations you can support in your community. There are countless ways to improve your wellbeing. Make joy a habit by thinking of 1 simple act you can do daily to spark positive feelings. It might be as easy as thanking a friend.

 

Get out there and enjoy all the events people have worked hard to provide.  You can’t say there is nothing to do!

Alberta Health Services is pleased to share that we have launched a new advice and guidance line for parents, guardians and caregivers of children and youth (birth to 18 years of age) with concerns about their child’s development and well-being. The Pediatric Rehabilitation Line provides advice about developmental milestones in areas such as:

  • Moving and playing (e.g., crawling, coordination, playing with toys)
  • Talking and listening (e.g., babbling, understanding directions, stuttering)
  • Taking care of self (e.g., dressing, toileting, sleeping)
  • Managing emotions (e.g., calming self, becoming overwhelmed or overstimulated)
  • Difficulty eating or swallowing (e.g., coughing, gagging)
  • Hearing (e.g., responding to sounds, noise, voices, words)
  • Are recovering from COVID-19
  • Are looking for current rehabilitation resources (e.g., links to information or webinars)
  • Are looking for help to find local services

How to connect

This Alberta-only line is answered by Allied Health clinicians and operates Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Parents, guardians and caregivers can call 811 or the Rehabilitation Advice Line (1-833-379-0563) to be prompted to the Pediatric Rehabilitation Line.

Free webinar series

AHS also offers free webinars that cover a range of developmental topics, from toilet training and tummy time to emotional regulation and speech development, as well as many others. Parents and caregivers will build skills and gain confidence by learning practical ways to help children and youth improve their skills while supporting development.

In June, we are offering a special session on ‘junior-high jitters’ – transitioning to junior high school and the teenage years.

In May, we are excited to offer a new two-part Lunch & Learn series for older adults called “Silver Linings – Supporting Wellness in the Later Years”.  This series will provide a basic overview of mental health challenges that older adults may face and some coping strategies and supports for addressing the stressors and promoting wellness. This session is for any adult wanting to support their own wellness, or the wellness of someone they live or work with.

  • Child and Adolescent Addiction & Mental Health Education Resource Library

On our website, you will find additional resource links to a variety of community websites, webinars, handouts, and modules on addiction and mental health topics pertaining to children and youth.

It was Let’s Talk Day on Jan. 25 . The idea of Let’s Talk recognizes that one of the things that keeps us mentally healthy is talking, having someone listening, caring and connecting. But we are not always prepared to engage. We need tools and words to use to support someone who is going through something hard. These are some examples:

Discuss resources and next steps. Support the person in coming up with a plan. They may have been through something like this before and have an idea of what helps them, or this might be the first time they have felt this way. In any case, they may need support locating resources and identifying coping strategies. “Have you ever felt this way before? What was helpful in the past?” “Have you talked to anyone else about this? “Have you reached out to your family doctor?” “Let’s talk about what will help you cope right now.” “Would it be helpful if I came with you to your next appointment?” “I can help you look up mental health supports that might work for you.” If they don’t believe there’s a problem, don’t argue with them about it and don’t suggest possible solutions. You can keep checking in to see how they’re doing or try getting together more often, if that’s what they want.

You can find a whole guide with more ideas here:
