RIVER VALLEY RESILIENCE RETREAT is a volunteer-run organization that is committed to all PSP, Veterans and their families, and has been offering seasonal retreats and weekly peer-support sessions at a variety venues for the last few years, and since early 2022- we’ve moved into our permanent home on the bank of the South Saskatchewan River.
PSP don’t respond to stressful situations as others do. They tend to run toward stress, but too often their stresses cannot be seen, making it very difficult to deal with effectively.
Through unique ways of treating these issues we help them work through what they need to become whole again.
We teach resiliency skills and other coping strategies to better equip participants to deal with PTSI and all other occupational illnesses. Our Equine Assisted Learning Therapy program has been extremely popular and is a proven tool in many types of brain or head injuries for recovery and the teaching of coping skills.
Our dedicated team of volunteers are supported by a network of qualified individuals that in many instances are retired PSP and Veterans.
