Mental health is an issue that affects every member of our community. Often those of us who struggle with mental illness are unable to receive help due to stigma, long wait times and the lack of community support. In memory of a remarkable young man, the annual Caelin Porter Mental Health Awareness Walk is a youth-led initiative that shows our community cares about the mental health and well-being of our youth.
Money donated from the 2017 Caelin Porter Mental Health Awareness Walk was used to provide mental health supports for youth 15 to 24 years of age in our community. With your help, 71 individual counseling sessions were provided to address issues like trauma, anxiety and depression. By addressing the mental health needs of the youth in our community, we reduced the stigma associated with accessing supports, reduced wait times, and built resilience and well-being in our most vulnerable youth.
As a caring community, St. Albert continues to combat the stigma people with mental illness face through city programs and support systems to ensure no one is left alone.
Support. Give. Learn. Walk.
