NEED HELP? Call the FREE 24/7 Mental Health Help Line at 1-877-303-2642

The Community of Kindness project aims to normalize the discussion of mental health and mental illness in Whitecourt. Key activities include offering training (e.g., MHFA, ASIST, TIC) to community members, facilitating conversations about mental wellness through community peer groups, and promoting community awareness about mental health through advertising and other communications.

Impact/Outcomes

The changes and positive impact that can be contributed to our project is highlighting the importance of community wide conversations around Mental Health and Mental Wellness. Being able to provide the much-needed training to the public, agencies and community at large has ensured that this type of training and conversations will continue. One of the biggest changes noticed by many is how many resources there are available and the importance of removing barriers to finding help when you need it.
