Welcome to the Caregiver Education Series! 

The Education Team of the Children, Youth and Families – Addiction and Mental Health Edmonton Zone (AHS) is pleased to offer the caregiver education sessions. These free 90 minute sessions are intended to provide parents, caregivers, teachers, and community members with basic level information regarding addiction and mental health challenges that can and do affect children and youth.

To register for a session in Sherwood Park or Fort Saskatchewan, see our Eastern Edge Caregiver Page
