SABLE RIVER, N.S. — A $75,000 grant from the Nova Scotia Office of Addictions and Mental Health to a non-profit retreat in Sable River, Shelburne County, that helps veterans, retired and current RCMP members, police, paramedics, first responders, and others who suffer from PTSD is ‘a game changer,’ says the organization.
The Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia will receive $3 million to administer grants for mental health and addictions projects and services across the province. The foundation’s recent work has included providing provincial funding to Healthy Minds Cooperative’s Circles of Support. The Dartmouth organization was able to train eight people from the 2SLGBTIQA+ community to become safeTALK trainees, helping others within the community who might be struggling with thoughts of suicide.
A Nova Scotian peer support facility for essential services members suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder is seeking help to expand its services.
As part of its development plan, Rally Point Retreat in Sable River, on Nova Scotia’s South Shore, is looking to build an additional 160 cabins on 81 hectares of land. These 160 new cabins are expected to be used for the essential service members who are homeless and dealing with PTSD.
Bob and I lifted each one of these heavy motorcycle crate pallets by hand to load them into the T-Rex, then transported them to the sawmill yard.

There are soooo many rocks here in Nova Scotia! and I wouldn't change it for a thing! Love the landscape, makes for much more work though... keep pluggin' away, just like life with PTSD. Not going to let each stone stop me, and I can't carry them all, so learning to put them down, and utilizing help when I have it available to me. Thanks Kubota! and Bob and Jo! ... See MoreSee Less
