Key Roles

Hi Everyone!

My name is Megan Helmer and I am the Primary Liaison Family School Wellness Worker for Penhold Crossing. I have been a wellness worker with Chinook's Edge since 2014, having previously worked in Sylvan Lake. I received my B.A. in Psychology through the University of Calgary and my Masters in Clinical Counselling through the Graduate Center for Applied Psychology. I became a Canadian Certified Counsellor in April 2019. At home, I am a mom to two amazing little boys. I love spending time with my family, outdoors and baking.  

The Family School Wellness program is a free, confidential, voluntary support program that provides services to students and their families. The Family School Wellness program recognizes that a student's academic achievement and well-being is often affected by difficulties related to peers, family concerns and self. Therefore, this program aims to support students in working through these issues to achieve an overall sense of positive well-being.

What I love most about this program is not only being able to provide a sense of relief for students and their families during difficult times, but also seeing the progress and growth that can happen for students individually and within their family as a whole.
