Children’s mental health

Resources that help support children and youth with mental health concerns.


In our lifetime, 1 in 5 people will experience a mental illness and as many as 10% of people over the age of 15 will battle a drug or alcohol dependency. The financial impact on society is in the billions of dollars. The emotional impact on families and individuals is incalculable.

While Alberta’s current programs and services are helping to address the needs of Albertans struggling with addiction, mental health problems and mental illness, we know more has to be done.
