Beyond our times of physical need, our hospitals play an important role in the response to the growing mental health and addiction concerns in our community. The support they provide is often life-saving and sought at their most critical point.
Calgary Health Foundation is working with partners across the community to enhance our mental health resources and explore new ways of thinking about mental health care, aiming to create customized services, spaces and supports that will meet each person’s unique needs with the right care at the right time.
Through your support of the Hospital Home Lottery, we are investing in new critical and therapeutic care at our hospitals, designed specifically for mental health response. Our goal is to ensure that every patient that enters the hospital with chronic or complex mental health conditions will have the best possible chance to return to a better quality of life with their family and friends in the community.
From the emergency room to longer-term care units, the opportunity to enhance mental health services and supports in our hospitals across Calgary are immense.
This year has been challenging for many as we all are adjusting to a changing world. Through it all, our hospitals continue to stand strong as our lifeline.
Thank you for supporting Calgary Health Foundation through this year’s Hospital Home Lottery.
