The Town of Devon Community Services department aims to focus their work around creating a mentally healthy community. We do this using a mentla wellness lense with our work that we call #YouGotThis. For more information please click HERE.
To support this approach, the Town offers a variety of social, emotional, physical and nutritional programs, services and support groups that can support mental wellness.
Subsidized counselling. Sometimes you might need some additional support to help you through a difficult or stressful time. The Town of Devon can offer a limited number of sessions to eligible residents.
Subsidies are based on income. Broadly - for those who do not have children under 18 living at home, you may qualify if you earn less than $50,000 per household and for those with children under 18 at home this threshold increases to $75,000. Both centres are based in Leduc - for more information on what each centre can offer: Family Counselling Centres or Karunia Counselling
Our FCSS team can discuss this, and other options with you. For more information please call 780-987-8325 or via email HERE.
#YouGotThis got its own song by local Devon musical artist Kym Simon to develop a song in support of the campaign. The lyrics aim to remind people that they are not alone.

There are a number of support groups in Devon. The Town of Devon offers two groups - the Caregiver Support Group and The Virtues Pick.
The purpose of this group is to provide a safe, supportive and non-judgmental opportunity for people in a caregiver role to connect, exchange information, or simply to get some ‘you time’.

The Virtues Pick group offers an opportunity to reflect on the positive within yourself and others, in a confidential and supportive environment.
