Alberta isn't a stranger to natural disasters. From tornadoes to hailstorms, from foods to fires, Albertans have seen it all. Because of the recent Fort McMurray fires, many Alberta families had their lives turned on their heads. Evacuations, heartbreak and homelessness have touched the lives of most from the area.
Physical loss can be devastating, but the mental strain of all that's occurred in just a few weeks can affect the rest of victims' lives. Alberta Health Services has provided some resources for families affected by the fire to not only stay resilient, but also mentally healthy, too.
