Holiday Closure

Posted on December 21 2017

Sage will be closed for the holidays Friday, December 22 at 4:00 pm and will reopen on Tuesday, January 2 at 8:30 am.

We understand that the holidays are not an easy time for everyone, especially individuals experiencing isolation or marginalization, those suffering from mental illness, or low-resourced individuals. Stress from the holidays may also increase instances of abuse, and can be especially difficult for those grieving the loss of a loved one – but please remember, you are not alone.

  • Distress Line: 780-482-4357 (HELP)
  • If you are outside of Edmonton, please call the Rural Distress Line at 1-800-232-7288
