The cause behind the paws
Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation
The Stollery Children’s Hospital is creating integrated mental health services within its emergency department, which is the only pediatric emergency in northern Alberta. This important investment will boost urgent helpline support to be 24/7, and set up a separate walk-in clinic to improve access to expert care.
Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation
The Alberta Children’s Hospital Acute at Home program provides a lifeline to families who often feel like they’re treading water. This nimble, on-call team helps families with urgent mental health needs. Specially-trained mental health professionals connect with parents and young people where they’re at, whether it’s the family home, their neighbourhood coffee shop or virtually via mobile devices.
