Why Support Mental Health?

Mental illness affects one in five Albertans during their lifetime.  Mental illness and addiction take a significant toll on the health of Albertans, and on the cost of providing healthcare.  They also have a significant direct and in direct societal impact.

Severe and persistent mental illness is a chronic disease and should be treated like one.  Even minor or episodic mental health problems can easily deteriorate into lifelong chronic illness, without proper and timely treatment.
