Calgary's Mental Health and Addiction Strategy and Action Plan (the strategy) is connected to and looking to further connect with mental health and addiction researchers to inform the implementation of Strategy actions and initiatives.
We are interested in research projects that align with the Strategy and demonstrate practical applications. The goal is for best practices to inform specific actions and initiatives in the Stratecy.
Overview of the Strategy
The Strategy focuses on what we heard matters most to people in our community: being well, getting help and staying safe in our homes, schools, work and community.
|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|
|Current research areas of interest (2023)||

To advance the Strategy’s current research areas of interest in 2023, researchers and Strategy Implementation teams will have the opportunity to convene to share updates, emerging promising practices, determine systems gaps, alignments, and opportunities to collaborate.
