November is Family Violence Prevention Month in Alberta

Yvonne Family Violence Board

As part of Family Violence Prevention Month, Healthy Relationship display boards have been placed in some of the schools as well as the Kneehill Regional FCSS Office. Understanding what Healthy Relationships look like is important when creating awareness and prevention of family violence. Healthy relationships thrive on respect, kindness, and trust. Unhealthy ones revolve around an imbalance of power that's maintained through the use of controlling behaviours, emotional abuse, or physical aggression. If you think that you or someone you know is in an unhealthy relationship and you want to talk to someone, please reach out to the Family Wellness Worker in your community at 403-443-3800 or go to for more resources.
