Calgary Family Peer Connections
Shredding the Mental Health Stigma.
CFPC bridges the gap connecting vulnerable clients to proper mental health agencies while providing food, life skills support, and connectivity. Focusing on providing access to confidential and culturally competent services to clients in Willow Creek and surrounding rural communities to reduce long-term adverse mental health effects they may experience from COVID-19. It provides an all-encompassing approach to mental and physical wellness by creating positive relationships and life skill education, including frugality, competence, and community unity to children and youth 0-21 years of age and their family and extended family where applicable.
With the communities we serve in mind, we practice these values:
- Practicing compassion and inclusion through culturally competent and anti-oppressive services.
- Focusing on quality and collaboration to grow ourselves and others.
- Providing safe, confidential, and judgement-free person-centered care
At CFPC, we are a safe, inclusive, and fair organization. We value the relationships we have created and commit to building respectful relationships with all people and all living entities on the earth as we advocate for change. We will continue to challenge oppression in all forms and continue supporting all youth and their families regardless of history, culture, language, sexual orientation, gender identity, body image, age or other barriers. We transform human relations and remove structural power with a holistic approach. Every individual has the inherent right to search for and receive recovery and encourage a healthy and productive life. We advocate for the support needed individually, as a family or a community member in a positive or cohesive environment to have their voices heard.
