Covid Related Changes
Like everyone in Central Alberta, we are paying close attention to the Corona virus status of our community and to the local and provincial regulations that are in place. Many of our main office staff are, once again, working from home, and we are observing all of the recommendations put forth by the government in all of our locations.
The CMHA main office is open by appointment only. Please call us at 403-342-2266 if you would like to talk or see one of our staff. Our Crisis Counselor and Systems Navigator are working hard for you and are up to date with the latest and the best services and information.
So much has changed for our Recovery College programming at our Learning Centre.
- We no longer schedule group learning at the Learning Centre.
- You can register for online learning here: http://recoverycollegecentralalberta.ca. Call us if you need help, 403-342-2266.
- If you are facing a barrier to Zoom online learning, call us. We are often able to arrange for you to participate in our support groups or multisession courses using our technology in our Learning Centre. You must arrange for that in advance, by calling us at 403-342-2266 or sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also opening our Zoom rooms 30 minutes before each class so people can hang out and get support from our trained peers. So, for example, if you have registered for a 2 PM class, we will be available in the Zoom room at 1:30. You can also arrange for one on one peer support with Vicki by calling 403-342-2266.
The Province Wide Recovery College Survey
Recovery College has been available through five CMHAs in Alberta as a demonstration project. The project is winding down and all of us very much want to have Recovery College funded in the future. One way to do that is to have a body of information we can use for funding applications. You can help us develop that body of information by taking a 10 minute, totally anonymous, survey.
If you want to provide your email address, you will be added into a draw for a $100 gift certificate,
Please take the survey today at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/9XT36G8 Note this is a corrected web address.
On a more Festive Note…
Many of you will remember that our education program made a very big deal about Christmas each year–we cooked together (the Jiggs dinner year was really something), we made stockings for each other, and we went to the mall and took a group picture with Santa.
That is not possible this year, but we still want to do something special.
We would like to put together a small recipe collection that we can give as gifts to people attending our virtual holiday party. We are also putting together a holiday play list.
Please help us make 2020 special by sending/emailing us your YouTube links for the play list and your recipes.
