For Those on the Road to Recovery

Alberta Recovery Colleges

Alberta Recovery Colleges offer a range and variety of recovery-focused courses designed for individuals, families, the workplace, and cultural and spiritual communities.

For Youth in our Communities

Youth Hubs seeks to increase accessibility and coordination for these resources, all while empowering Alberta’s youth in need.

For Rural Communities

Rural Mental Health Project

Rural communities experience isolation and are typically underserved when it comes to mental health, and CMHA’s Rural Mental Health Project seeks to change that. By developing networking and conducting training, RMH strives to utilize a community-based approach capitalizing on the strengths and identifying the needs of rural communities regarding mental health. In doing so, RMH achieves a localized approach specific to the communities it serves.
