The Mental Health Foundation is proud to fund programs and initiatives serving communities across Alberta.

Throughout 2023-24 a total of $1,349,332 was disbursed for mental health and addictions resources across the province.

The Mental Health Foundation prioritizes recovery through integrated systems of care, research, education, and innovation. We support essential programs and services to ensure Albertans have accessible mental health care when they need it most.

Many of these initiatives involve multiple donors and the support of Alberta Health Services to be successful. The MHF aligns with government priorities when making our strategic investments. This is not a comprehensive lists of all MHF funded projects and more will be added in the future.

We strategically guide donor investments in high impact, essential areas.
