Why Give

Imagine a community where all children, youth and families are empowered to thrive through timely mental health care. With your help, this can happen right here in Alberta.

You can help us can reach more kids and break down barriers to mental health care as we expand services online and to more communities across Alberta.

When it comes to mental illness, youth is a critical period: most people living with a mental illness see their symptoms begin before age 18. Approximately 20 per cent of Canadian youth are affected by a mental illness or disorder. These are not just statistics – they are our loved ones, friends and neighbours.

With your support, we can reach more children facing mental illness. Together, let’s level up for kids’ mental health!
