What to expect when you call Compass?
We are deeply saddened by impacts of wildfires during this season, particularly the recent example of the devastating wildfires in Northeastern British Columbia. The Compass Program is committed to the well-being and safety of our communities, especially during times of crisis. As the recent disaster and evacuation alerts in the Peace River Regional District highlight, there is urgent need for disaster preparedness and we want to ensure that you have access to the necessary resources for child and youth mental health support during these times.
