AFM School-Based Services
We are here to help. Students who are sus-pended for an alcohol/drug policy violation, or students who voluntarily request help for their substance use, are referred to an AFM Counsellor for assessment. The purpose of the assessment is to gather information that will help the counsellor and the student set goals (make an action plan based on the young person’s needs). Following the assessment, the student may continue to receive counselling on an ongoing basis. Contact the Student Services Department at 204-326-9829 for more details.
