The Living the Gift Psychology Support Program is named after the late Charles Bower who lived with ALS and wrote a blog called Living the Gift. Charlie embraced life as it came to him and believed that life was a gift no matter the challenge.
With the help of the Association of Psychologists in Nova Scotia, the ALS Society of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia is pleased to refer people and their families living with ALS to a psychologist for help with coping with a terminal disease and other related issues. The help may be for the person living with ALS, for children or other immediate family members.
Please contact your ALS Champion for further information.
New Brunswickers living with ALS can access psychological services through the Stan Cassidy Centre. People wishing to access these services must be registered with the Stan Cassidy Centre and have a referral.
