How you can support the Centre in 2017
Help us expand our mental health services
Since 1962, Calgary Counselling Centre (CCC) has provided high-quality, affordable mental health services to Calgary and area residents aged 3 to 89. Individuals, couples, and families come to the Centre from all walks of life for help with depression, anxiety, stress, job loss, domestic abuse, addiction, family issues, parent-child conflict, self-esteem issues, relationship issues, grief, trauma, and much more.
Last year, 60% of our clients were individuals, couples or families that had help paying their counselling fees through the generosity of the community.
In 2017, we will continue to expand our mental health services in an effort to help more people than ever before, but we need your help. Here are a few ways you can support our continued expansion of mental health services:
CommUNITY Tile Campaign
Mental illness impacts all of us in some way. Chances are, someone you know – a friend, a neighbour, a co-worker, a family member, or perhaps even yourself – is struggling. But what can we do to help?
Consider making a donation to Calgary Counselling Centre’s commUNITY tile campaign in support of expanding mental health services in our community. By purchasing a tile for yourself or for your loved ones, you are ensuring members of our community get the compassionate, professional, and affordable counselling services they need.
For $125, you will receive one tile with your name that will be installed on our legacy wall in our new home at the Kahanoff Centre. You can make a real difference in the community, while simultaneously helping us recognize mental health champions and ambassadors.
Learn more about the CommUNITY Tile Campaign and how you can purchase a tile.
With leadership and innovation, we will create healthier communities together. Join us in establishing your lasting legacy at Calgary Counselling Centre by investing in the expansion of mental health services. Many recognition and investment naming opportunities at different levels are available such as our:
Family counselling room
Children’s play space in the waiting room
Group counselling rooms
We welcome a conversation to find a space that is meaningful to you.
All gifts through our expansion of mental health services have the opportunity to go even further. For every $2 that is donated to our capital campaign in support of expanding mental health services, a generous, anonymous donor will give an additional $1 to Calgary Counselling Centre. Which means $100 becomes $150, $200 becomes $300, $1,000 becomes $1,500 and so on.
Financial assistance for counselling services
Now more than ever, people are turning to us for help with depression, anxiety, and stress as the economy remains in flux. Your gift to Calgary Counselling Centre ensures that Calgarians have access to the mental health services they need without added financial pressure.
Children and youth
Mental health is an important aspect of the overall health and well-being of Canadian youth and young adults and most mental illnesses begin to manifest themselves in adolescence and early adulthood. At Calgary Counselling Centre we want to ensure youth have access to the right services at the right time.
Your donation goes towards helping identify and treat a number of the issues the youth of southern Alberta may be facing including: depression/anxiety, self-esteem, bullying, domestic conflict, eating disorders, and more.
