Investing in Calgary’s Mental Health and Addiction Investment Framework
In March 2021, City Council approved Calgary’s Mental Health and Addiction Strategy, as well as the supporting Investment Framework which was developed to guide investment within three critical outcome areas:
- Being well: Wellness at home, at school, at work and in the community
- Getting help: What you need, when where and how you need it
- Staying safe: Security at all times, especially in a crisis*
Funding allocations are overseen by administration in collaboration with the Community Investment Table, which was established in 2020 to co-invest and guide the investments in fast pilot projects which address issues related to mental health, addictions and public safety.
*Investments in Staying Safe are allocated through the complimentary Community Safety Investment Framework.
