Canadian Mental Health Association of NB – D2R: From Dependency to Recovery

community-nature

ANBL is proud to be the title sponsor of this six-week education program for people who are living with an addiction, unhealthy behaviour, or families affected by addiction. The program provides information and resources to assist people in staying focused on recovery which takes effort and a strong support system. The aim of D2R is to help and encourage participants in a safe and relaxed atmosphere.  

Youth Impact Jeunesse – Drug Intervention Program (DIP)

community-DIP

Since 2016, ANBL has invested 100K in this life saving program that assists young people in coping with addiction issues that have impaired their ability to become connected and contributing members of society.  The program reduces risk factors of substance abuse, conflict with the law, mental health issues, and degrees of homelessness.  In addition, it moves young people towards employment, higher education, better decision-making skills, and stronger relationships in their lives. 

Nature Trust of NB - Passport to Nature


in-the-community-nature-trust

The Nature Trust of New Brunswick has launched the 2nd Annual Passport to Nature initiative, with a digital twist. On July 8, the provincial land trust announced 20 free, family-friendly online events, which include 10 educational webinars and 10 educational videos, to engage with New Brunswickers about the importance of conserving land and wildlife in New Brunswick.

The goal of the Passport to Nature initiative is to encourage the public to discover the beauty and biodiversity New Brunswick nature has to offer on their own terms, from the comfort of their own home.

School is back and so are MADD Canada’s education programs for students! ANBL is proud to sponsor the school presentation programs once again, which provide dynamic, effective education opportunities to help students in grades 4 through 12 understand the importance of sober driving. This year, programs are available in the traditional in-person format, and through new virtual online formats, depending on school preferences and safety protocols.
