E-Prep focuses on the importance of practical preparedness and psychosocial health and wellness in the event of an emergency or disaster.
The intent of this workshop is to encourage individuals to discuss, explore, discover and develop their own personal emergency plan.
Disasters (including pandemics), are becoming a common occurrence and preparation is the best predictor of resilience. E-Prep builds resilience at the individual, family and community level. Preparing both physically and emotionally can help mitigate the risk of long term health impacts of disasters and emergencies. The recently developed Virtual E-Prep is based on the in-class facilitated workshop developed by Alberta Health Services and carya in response to the Southern Alberta 2013 floods and has been specifically designed for virtual delivery during a pandemic.
Anyone looking to be more physically and emotionally prepared during an emergency (pandemic) or disaster.
