This module is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills to deal with stress and find healthy coping techniques.

The EQUIPPED program has been initiated by a grant that was provided to CMHA Calgary in memory of Phillip Thomas.

“Our hope is that this program equips teens and young adults with the tools and resources they need to cope with mental health struggles, build resilience, and end the stigma around mental health. CMHA Calgary has helped our family survive this terrible tragedy, and we hope this program can help prevent another one.”

Learn about equipped: mental health courses for young adults

EQUIPPED offers mental health courses and tools for young adults. It provides an online platform for learning through modules and workbooks. EQUIPPED builds on the basic concepts taught in YouthSMART, but expands knowledge for a slightly older audience of emerging adults – ages 16 to 24.

As of 2022, two courses are available. Our free courses take about an hour to complete and include a downloadable workbook. As such, you can complete both the course and the workbook together, or you can choose to start with whichever fits your learning style.
