If you are looking for information about addiction and mental health services available in your community or for healthcare advice please call 811, if this is an emergency please dial 911.

This page is for the new Centre for Child and Adolescent Mental Health being built in the community of Hounsfield Heights - Briar Hill in Calgary, Alberta.

This page will be updated regularly throughout the building and development of the centre with information and opportunities to provide feedback.

Alberta Health Services (AHS), in partnership with the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation is building a centre for child and adolescent mental health in Calgary.

Once built, the new facility will provide community-based mental health services to help ensure mentally healthy futures for children and adolescents in our community.

Highlights

By offering these services in the community, clients and their families will have access to more readily available services to help meet their needs. It is our hope that all of our clients have access to the services they need in a timely manner.

The new facility will be home to a mental health walk-in service, intensive outpatient therapy and a day hospital program.

    In late 2018, AHS began recruiting Patient and Family Advisors to share experiences, expertise and perspectives as the Centre is built. The advisors work in partnership with us through two councils: a Child and Youth Advisory Council, and a Family Advisory Council.

    The Patient and Family Advisors are volunteers who help us develop programs and services that are responsive to the needs of patients and provide the right care, in the right place, at the right time.

    Active recruitment for the advisory councils is currently closed. If you are interested in future advisor opportunities with the Centre you can email: ccamh.calgary@ahs.ca.

    To learn more about other Patient and Family Advisor opportunities please visit the ahs.ca website, here.

  • Valuing Mental Health Report 2015

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    The 2015 Valuing Mental Health Report is a review of mental health services in Alberta and provides 32 recommendations.

    One in five Albertans experience an addiction or mental illness, and most adults show signs and symptoms during childhood.

    The new Centre for Child and Adolescent Mental Health aligns with the recommendations from this report. The centre will provide access to three different treatment options to treat children and youth when the signs and symptoms first occur. Services will be provided in a way that is less stigmatized, more integrated into the community, with better patient outcomes and less need for acute inpatient intervention.
