Pillar One, Prevention
Prevention underscores the importance of strong caregiver support, healthy social networks and a sense of responsibility within the person's community.  It is crucial that every caregiver understand adolescent development and for this reason and many others your BC Borstal works with young families and in our local schools

Pillar Two, Intervention

Early Intervention speaks to immediate and skilled action in cases of exposure to a potentially traumatic situation and or experience.  This exposure can be a perceived or actual threat to one's life or safety - from a violent act to neglect in the home.

Pillar Three, Aftercare
A traumatic response or Post Traumatic Stress is not uncommon and in many cases is a normal response to an abnormal experience.  Our brains have a built in survival mechanism however at times there is difficulty turning off the alarm.  Our skilled Clinical Care team can help restore balance
