Mountain Plains CSSN is holding a gala next month to raise funds for an official Snoezelen Sensory Room in Grande Prairie.
Emma Halling, Human Resources Coordinator, says the room is very tactile and relaxing and can be used by numerous individuals, of all ages
“We are going to have a waterbed in there. There is lots of lovely stimulating lights that will build a very calm environment for people who need a safe space for counselling, such as children coming from a traumatic background.”
“It is an environment that will also help people suffering with anxiety, depression, stress, mental illness, sensory deprivation, autism.”
The “Indulge Your Senses” gala is October 14th.
It will include a three course dinner and a magician for entertainment.
