Our goal is to help the citizens of our communities stay healthy and strong throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Global response to the COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on people around the world. Measures such as business closures, isolation and social distancing have caused a major mental health crisis, and our local communities are no exception.
Who we are...
Together Talk was created to provide extra support to our communities and help bridge the gap between existing services. such as local FCSS services, physicians, AHS addictions and mental health services.
Funding for this project was provided through the Government of Alberta Mental Health and Addiction COVID-19 Community Funding Grant Program. This $25 million program supports community projects and services that enhance COVID-19 mental health and addiction recovery supports and services. The grant program is a part of the more than $53 million committed by Alberta’s government to enhance mental health and addiction supports during and after the pandemic.
