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.
About CMHA Calgary

We provide community-based programs, including supportive and independent living, peer support for families and individuals, and community education for adults and youth.

CMHA Calgary’s YouthSMART Initiative (Youth Supporting Mental Health and Resiliency Together) integrates mental health learning opportunities in local junior and senior high schools, as well as youth community groups. Operating for over a decade, and reaching close to 25,000 young people each year, YouthSMART provides mental health education, proven to generate an awareness of mental health topics, combat stigma, and encourage appropriate help seeking behaviours amongst Calgary and area youth.
