Nova Scotia Quality of Life Survey

How can we work together to be happier, healthier and more fulfilled in all areas of our lives? We think these are questions worth asking. Check your mailbox in late April for an opportunity to participate in the Nova Scotia Quality of Life Survey. By filling it out, you will help ensure a unique Quality of Life Report is created for your region! It will also ensure the issues most important to the health and happiness of you and your family receive closer attention. By completing the survey you will have the opportunity to enter for a chance to win 1 of 25 Sobeys gift cards (value $400 each!) This is a first-of-its-kind survey for Nova Scotia. This initiative is being led by Engage Nova Scotia with the support of Nova Scotia Community College and Local Leadership Teams across the region.

This year at our Summit we are offering something new

At the NSFA 2019 Summit we are offering a new program: a full day Smart Alice Intervention Training from Alice House focused on identifying signs of domestic violence. As fitness instructors, we interact with so many people on a very regular basis. With the movement towards better mental health awareness happening all around us, the skills provided by the Alice House are important and valuable, as much or more so than the other skills we offer our members.

What will I get out of this session?

SmartAlice training provides an easy to remember action model to build participant skills in learning to see warning signs, believe the Victim/Survivor, support them with safety planning, and relieve isolation by providing appropriate referrals.
