The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Alberta Division Election Tool Kit has been designed to provide you with materials to support your efforts in advocating for better mental health outcomes in Alberta.
CMHA Alberta Division is happy to be a voice advocating for the mental health of all Albertans during the provincial election of 2019. This election, we hope you make mental health a priority and discuss with your candidates the importance of mental health, mental illness and addictions services in your community.
Typically, tool kits focus on three to four key messages. Mental health has become a topic of interest in Alberta among policy makers and the broad spectrum of sectors representing all
Albertans. This has created a need for a broader set of key messages because of the pervasive nature of mental illness and addictions within our population.
Many pages in this tool kit can be copied and used as one-pagers to leave behind with candidates and community members. We encourage you to pick and choose, copy and paste, select and reformat the information contained in this kit to help you support
better mental health outcomes for all Albertans.
