Learning experiences for everyone

Recovery College offers short-term courses and discussion groups to support participants with mental health concerns (including substance use).

We focus on helping people develop their own resourcefulness in order to support themselves or their loved one’s recovery. Recovery College is for anyone: youth, older adults, family, friends, and parents. You are not required to have a referral, diagnosis, previous experience or be a CMHA Calgary client to participate. All are Welcome!

We have many different courses available. Browse our upcoming courses below or check out the course catalogue for more options.

All of our courses are delivered in partnership with our Peer Supporters who are experts by experience: they have their own personal story of a mental health or substance use concern, or are supporting a loved one.
