A new research program made possible by generous community support through the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation looks to break new ground in child and adolescent mental health care by generating data that will be used to develop, test and refine interventions for kids experiencing mental health concerns. Mental Health Research 4 Kids invites young people who are 18 years old or younger to participate in child and adolescent mental health studies led by researchers at the University of Calgary and the Alberta Children’s Hospital Research Institute. Parents and young people will have the opportunity to pick and choose which research study or studies they would like to participate in. Some studies will be designed to develop new treatments, others could help scientists better understand brain function, and who is at risk for mental health concerns.

Thanks to stretches of milder winter weather, construction is moving ahead smoothly on the new Centre for Child and Adolescent Mental Health set to open this fall in the northwest community of Hounsfield Heights. Youth and family advisors continue to help shape interior design work and furniture choices to ensure everything looks and feels warm and welcoming. They’re also providing input on the Centre’s new name which is expected to be finalized this summer.

When it opens this fall, the Centre for Child & Adolescent Mental Health will be unlike any other in Canada, providing three crucial new services: a dedicated walk-in clinic, an intensive treatment program, and Calgary’s first mental health day hospital – all supporting youth and families in our community.

You helped us build it, now you can help us name it!

Alberta Health Services has launched a short survey to hear suggestions from the community that made this Centre possible by funding its construction.

It takes less than 10 minutes to share your thoughts and there will be opportunities to join one of two focus groups taking place this month. The survey closes January 27.
