For Adults

Youth Hubs Alberta provides caregivers and adults with youth-related resources and information.

Resources for caregivers

Many parents and caregivers may be concerned about their child’s well-being or may have a difficult time coping with a mental health concern of a child or young adult. Parents and caregivers often wonder how best to parent and provide support. Families impacted by a mental health concern or diagnosis can find it particularly difficult to get the help they need.

CMHA in Alberta in partnership with the Government of Alberta, Ministry of Children’s Services has developed a peer-to-peer family support program. Caregiver Connections provides parents and caregivers of individuals with a mental health concern. We provide peer support services in six Alberta Regions, offering compassionate support along with specific information and resources.

We respectfully acknowledge that we are on the traditional lands and territories of Indigenous people in Alberta. Generations from past, present and future. In doing so, we want to recognize the significance of our relationships with the land and the peoples who call this ‘home.’ As we reflect on supporting community design in the Youth Mental Health Hubs initiative, we will engage and embrace the teachings we are gifted from the first peoples regarding the history and connection to the land. As treaty people, we commit to a reciprocal relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous worldviews that honour and respect ways of knowing and being, ones that can be reflected and supported with the communities in building strong foundations for all youth and families to learn, work and play.
