The theme of ARES 2018 is, “Building Healthy Rural Communities”. Many rural areas experience challenges in securing supports and there are countless stories about how services like mental health are very difficult to find in many rural communities. Together with our partners, we will learn about the services that are available in rural Alberta. At the same time, we will find out what services are needed to support rural communities and how to develop strategies that will ensure that our rural communities receive equitable services when compared to our urban counterparts.

Special thanks to Dr. Jody Carrington for her energetic and inspiring keynote presentation Lighting it Up for Our Babes and Stay Lit Ourselves: A Model to Address our Mental Health Crisis for Rural Schools. An excellent way to conclude the 2018 Alberta Rural Education Symposium!
