The Rural Mental Health Project is excited to announce that we are starting a Community Grants program!

The RMH Community Grants program supports projects that focus on mental health promotion in rural and remote communities across Alberta. Grants are only available to rural communities who have a trained Community Animator.

To get involved with the Rural Mental Health Project, visit our About page to learn more and then fill out the Expression of Interest to start training. 



Local mental health promotion projects must align with the Rural Mental Health Project’s guiding principles and be developmental in nature. See our Project Principles and the Project Overview Video to learn more about the Project and our principles. The RMH Community Grants exist to support action plans tailored to each community’s local context and assets. The Grants will also support local activities in all stages of project development and implementation, with an emphasis on involving diverse voices in the planning and decision-making. 

Please see the Eligibility page for more information.
