The government has committed $3 million to support the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) – Calgary Region’s expansion of its successful Recovery College model to more communities across the province.
“Recovery is a priority for our government. Albertans deserve the ability to access the recovery services they need to help them live healthy, productive lives. These recovery colleges provide important supports from people with real experiences that help support long-term recovery.” Jason Luan, Associate Minister of Mental Health and Addictions.
The funding is for additional recovery colleges in Wood Buffalo, Edmonton, Lethbridge and Red Deer. The Calgary, Edmonton and Wood Buffalo sites are open. The Lethbridge and Red Deer sites will open September 2019.
