The Community Coming Together (CCT) Project is part of the provincial Mental Health Capacity Building Initiative, which means that we are working toward teaching staff, students and families how to promote mental wellness in themselves and others. This is a project which is a joint venture between Alberta Health Services, Alberta Education, The Medicine Hat Catholic Board of Education, and various community partners. We have been in existence since 2008 and currently work out of all schools in the Medicine Hat Catholic School Division. Community Coming Together embraces the opportunity to inform youth about mental health and to dispel many of the myths that surround mental illness. Together we can begin to help students and families start to identify various ways to manage stress and build resiliency.
