About Equipped


Started in 2022, EQUIPPED offers mental health training 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.


The courses and workbooks are designed to equip you with knowledge and skills to support your mental well-being. The online courses are a self-guided, work at your own pace. There are also workbooks to apply your knowledge through activity-based learning.

You can complete both the course and the workbook together, or you can choose to start with whichever fits your learning style.

These courses are developed with emerging adults (ages 16 to 24) in mind, but anyone who is interested in growing their skills and knowledge about mental health are welcome to participate.  

Everyone has mental health. These courses are for anyone who wants to learn more about how to cope with stress or better support their mental well-being. 

Nothing! The courses are free, thanks to a generous anonymous donation to CMHA Calgary.
