Media Release: Calgary Dads "on the Run" April 30 to Establish Alberta's First Eating Disorders Residential Treatment Centre

(Calgary AB, April 11, 2016) - More than 30,000 Albertans (male and female) suffer from eating disorders, with no specialized provincial residential treatment facility for the illness. On April 30, two Calgary dads who know firsthand the pain of having a child with an eating disorder will run 90,000 steps with a total elevation change of over 6,000 metres in Arizona's Grand Canyon as part of the first fundraising efforts of Calgary Silver Linings Foundation (CSLF), the only Alberta foundation working towards the establishment of the province's first eating disorder residential treatment centre in Southern Alberta.

Be Heard! Alberta Mental Health Review Questionnaire

The provincial government is conducting a Mental Health Review and is requesting Albertans to fill out an online questionnaire to provide input on how to improve the services to those living with mental health challenges. 

Our organization is very keen to provide feedback to government on how we would like to see services improved.  We strongly encourage you to also take the time to fill out the questionnaire as individuals affected in some way by eating disorders and influence the changes to the system.
