Giving Hope for Mental Health Campaign

We have always asked the people of Medicine Hat to dream big, and envision a better future – and that’s because we do too.

The Giving Hope for Mental Health campaign has a goal to raise over $500,000 for the mental health departments, focusing on the following areas:

  • Funds given to the hospital’s adult inpatient care will be used for beds, furniture, and a large-scale upgrade to the facility’s design to optimize safety, security and comfort.
  • Creating a dedicated mental health space for youth so that kids in crisis have a warm safe space.
  • The Medicine Hat Recovery Center will use their funds for new mattresses and beds, better landscaping, incorporating a walking path and meditation space.
  • Ongoing exercise equipment and program support needs for the mental health outreach programs.

Mental health is not a burden to carry alone. When we come together, we can bring hope and healing to our community.
