An update and an exciting opportunity!
During the past two months of social distancing due to COVID-19 McMan Calgary & Area has adapted our services to keep everyone safe.
Our dedicated staff check-in with the individuals and families we serve regularly, deliver supplies and resources, and offer virtual support. We have moved many of our group-based services onto virtual platforms to ensure youth and families continue to have access to support, skill development and an opportunity to build connections.
However, we are starting to see an increased need for mental health supports. Many of us can relate to feelings of anxiousness due to the unpredictability of our current situation. We are seeing an increase in feelings of isolation, loneliness, anxiety and depression with the vulnerable individuals and families we work with.
McMan is preparing for the influx of mental health need by increasing our counselling services, mental wellness workshops and resources, and related programming.
We have an exciting opportunity to further your support of mental health programming for youth through Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink, who will match your donation up to 50%. To further your impact today click here.
Together, we are transforming lives!
