Mental Health Resources

Who can my child talk to at school?

Each of our Catholic schools has regular access to Wellness Facilitators (Community Coming Together) and counselling support in their school buildings. Our School Liaison Counsellor (SLC) Team is connected to each school in our division to provide support to students and their families. SLCs are able to connect families to community resources as needed. If you believe your child is in need of support, please contact your school principal and they will connect you with the proper intervention.

Community Coming Together

Community Coming Together (CCT) began in 2007 and is a part of the provincial Mental Health Capacity Building Initiative, working to promote positive mental health in children, youth, families and individuals in the community who interact with children and youth.

Funding for this program comes from AHS Provincial Addiction and Mental Health. It provides prevention and promotion services to all nine of the schools in the Medicine Hat Catholic Board of Education.
