What We Do
As a self-help organization, we strive to raise awareness within the medical community, educational institutions and the general public, to prevent further cases of Environmental Sensitivity (ES) from occurring. The Public recognition that results will help people in need to obtain the resources necessary to access safe food, water, housing and treatment, in order to regain their health. As a self-help group we provide support and education for those who wish to help themselves.

Information packages — These will be developed so they are both in print and online. General packages, by subject would be for an ES person's doctors or landlord or school.
Resources — We provide information on resources. Example: We do not have advocates but we direct callers to sources of advocates.
Brochures — These are condensed information sources that may be accessed online as well as in print.
Support Meetings — These provide human contact for those isolated by ES and give them an ability to network and build social contacts. Mini workshops give participants ways to help themselves heal or improve their lives.
Website — Provides information and resources for members and the public 24 hours a day.
Speakers — an EHA BC representative will talk about ES to a group and help them take steps to prevent ES.
