Mental Health Framework

Through the adoption of this Framework, people with mental health problems will be enabled to: 1. Access mental health care where and when they need it, and be able to move through the system easily, so that people who need intensive input receive it in the appropriate place, rather than face being discharged to no support 2.
A Framework for Support is CMHA’s central policy regarding people with mental illness. This third edition retained the integrity of the model and is now positioned within the current context of population health, health promotion, and recovery.
The framework leverages Alberta’s existing investments made in training and professional development. It summarizes core knowledge, behavioural and activating competencies identified as essential for professionals across sectors to support and promote mental health.
