About MHCB

Mental Health Capacity Building (MHCB) In-School Initiative

Alberta's Mental Health Capacity Building (MHCB) In-School Initiative is funded and managed by Alberta Health Services.  There are MHCB programs across the province of Alberta.  

The purpose of the MHCB is to promote positive mental health in children, youth, families and communities.  A large part of this work is reducing the stigma of mental illness.  

Everyone has mental health, just as we have physical health to care for.  By raising awareness and promoting positive coping strategies, we work together with schools and community agencies to develop strong, healthy and resilient young people.
