Welcome to the Making Mental Health Matter in Alberta tool kit presented by the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), Alberta Division. The tool kit has been designed to provide you with materials to support your efforts in advocating for better mental health outcomes in Alberta. In any given year, one in five people will experience a mental illness, however, five in five people have mental health. We’ve designed this tool kit to give you the information you’ll need to make mental health matter in your community.
CMHA Alberta Division believes mental health is a human right and we are proud to join the many others in Alberta who are advocating for the mental health of all. Today and every day we hope you make mental health a priority. We invite you to join the conversation about mental health and advocate for the importance of community-level supports and services for Albertans facing mental illness and addictions.
Many pages in this tool kit can be copied and used as one-pagers to help educate and inform policy makers, mental health advocates and others within your community. We encourage you to pick and choose, copy and paste, select and reformat the information contained in this kit to help achieve better mental health for all Albertans.
