Luan addressed the sites while he was in Calgary to announce $3 million for the Canadian Mental Health Association’s Recovery College project.
The service, which offers free courses and peer support for people struggling with mental illness or substance use, started in Calgary one year ago. It’s since expanded to Edmonton and Fort McMurray, and the additional funding will let CMHA make courses available in Lethbridge and Red Deer.
“Recovery is a priority for our government,” Luan said.
People in Calgary looking for support can walk in to the Recovery College centre at 10 St. and 7 Ave. S.W., along the CTrain line. Courses cover everything from emotional boundaries and addiction recovery to financial literacy and parenting skills.
