Programs & Initiatives

The Mental Health Foundation supports programs that are evidence-based and action-oriented with the goal of positively impacting the lives of those suffering from mental health issues.

 

Incredible Years 

 Providing an accepting environment means that many parents—who would otherwise struggle alone—will get help. Incredible Years assists parents who are struggling with substance use, as well as needing help with their parenting. 

ACCESS Open Minds 

 ACCESS Open Minds acts as a catalyst to integrate the system and offer timely, appropriate, and continuous access to care. That means more youth who need support stay engaged.

All in for Youth 

With an commitment of $500,000 over the next five years, the Mental Health Foundation has invested in a program called All In For Youth. We're ensuring kids get the support they need in the spaces where they need it.

Brain Stimulation 

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation treats depression by using magnets to target brain cells that control emotional regulation. It has virtually no side effects, is painless and non-invasive, and shows potential for treating a range of mental illnesses.


Young Adult Services 

Young Adult Services offers the Young Adult Treatment  Program, and provides addiction counselling services, including recreation and leisure skills, to youth between 18 and 24 years old. This past year, Youth Day Camps were offered as part of the training.


Alberta Hospital Edmonton 

The Mental Health Foundation was born out of Alberta Hospital Edmonton and continues to support it by providing funds for research, education, and improvement of patient care.
