Alberta Recovery Colleges
Recovery Colleges offer a range and variety of recovery-focused courses designed for individuals, families, the workplace, and cultural and spiritual communities. All Recovery College courses are co-developed and co-facilitated with the community and peers (individuals with “lived experience” who are role models to their peers and embody hope and recovery) exploring community strengths, as personal expertise is embedded with professional expertise.
Integrated Youth Hubs
Integrated Youth Hubs are community-designed, developed, and implemented through the commitment and vision of each unique community. This is an evidence-based, integrated model of care that provides a framework that supports a true collaborative approach to improving coordinated access to existing services, increase accessibility and increase alignment with youth services provincially.
OSI-CAN – Peer Support for First Responder’s in Alberta
OSI-CAN is a community-based peer support initiative designed to assist our military, first responder and public safety personnel through conscious connections and group support in dealing with Operational and Post Traumatic Stress.
Many parents and caregivers may be concerned about their child’s well-being or may have a difficult time coping with a mental health concern of a child or young adult. Parents and caregivers often wonder how best to parent and provide support. Families impacted by a mental health concern or diagnosis can find it particularly difficult to get the help they need.
CMHA in Alberta in partnership with the Government of Alberta, Ministry of Children’s Services has developed a peer-to-peer family support program. Caregiver Connections provides parents and caregivers of individuals with a mental health concern. We provide peer support services in six Alberta Regions, offering compassionate support along with specific information and resources.
