CALGARY FAMILY PEER CONNECTIONS DURING THE COVID 19 PANDEMIC
Calgary Family Peer Connections’ (CFPC) focuses on empowering youth, their families and the community, connecting them with essential resources to meet their unique needs, in a rural setting. As mental health can carry a heavy stigma especially in rural communities, providing a firm foundation in the community encourages connectivity, education and unity for years to come. As well, reducing the trauma and isolation piece of COVID-19 in the community empowers clients with resilience to get through these tough times.
Our mission During the COVID 19 Pandemic
Calgary Family Peer Connections is to bridge the gap, connecting clients to the proper agencies, meeting their needs and reducing long term adverse effects from such an impactful pandemic. Simplifying the process of accessing appropriate and specific resources related to the struggles families are now experiencing because of COVID 19; helping the client fulfill their needs faster, more efficiently, which essentially is critical for mental health wellness during these uncertain times. CFPC provides an all-encompassing approach to mental wellness, including promoting physical health as well as research-based educational information to clients. Extensive research shows mental health is closely linked to our physical well being.
