Mental health ‘recovery college’ opens in downtown Calgary 

On Tuesday, the Calgary chapter of the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) launched Alberta’s first “Recovery College.”

It’s located at the association’s brand new centre at the corner of 10th Street and Seventh Avenue S.W., right on the C-Train line.

The Recovery Centre and Recovery College offer more than 40 wellness courses developed and taught by 16 support staff who have lived through their own mental health or addiction challenges. Support staff also receive 120 hours of training, 70 hours of in-class work and a 50-hour internship, both in the organization and within the community.

The Recovery Centre is the first of its kind in Alberta.

There are three others across Canada, with plans to open additional centres in Edmonton and Fort McMurray.
