Mental Health and Addictions

Lack of support in the area of mental illness and addiction have been a growing concern for many years.  With the arrival of COVID-19 many experts are concerned about an 'echo pandemic' of mental health challenges.  From our research over the last year we have identified three areas we believe will make a signficant postive change in the mental health and wellness of all Albertans.   For free online training on various mental health concerns including Trauma Informed Care, Grief, Crisis Intervention and more please view our webinars under the "Get Involved - Training Resources" page.

Truth and Reconciliation

Many steps with one goal Our Truth & Reconciliation Research Action Team encompasses both Indigenous Elders and Community Members and Non-Indigenous Leaders that continually examine steps we can take as a society to address the consequences of our ongoing legacy of colonization.

The Environment & The Green Line

As plans are made to re-start our economy the Environment team invites us to image a brighter climate future.  The Environment team, led by our member organization, the Climate Hub, is asking that the City of Calgary build for not just stimulus but climate through our Green Stimulus plan.

We Build Leaders

“I went to the training and discovered practical ways that I can build relationships and take action to bring about change in our city.”

Learn About Leadership Training

The Calgary Alliance for the Common Good is everyday people taking powerful action together for the common good.

We develop the diverse voices of our community, building relationships across religious, racial, class, and neighborhood lines.

Then we knit them together one by one to build the power to make the positive changes they want to see in our community, making our shared home a better place to live and thrive.

Victory - Mobile Response Teams & PACTS

April 16th, 2021. This week we had a victory for the city and the Calgary Alliance. The Calgary Police Service and AHS have agreed to expand the Police and Crisis Team (PACT) and Mobile Response Team (MRT).

What are PACT / MRT teams? The PACT teams consist of a mental health professional and a specially trained police officer. The mobile response teams are made up of mental health professionals. These teams respond to emergencies when having just a police officer simply does not make sense.
