Speaker's Group

The Speaker's Group is a group of mental health consumers who, with help from an instructor, writes the story of their personal experience, reaction from family and friends, when and how they got help and how they are coping today. They are also given a mini Toastmaster's training to help prepare them to speak in public.

Their stories are mostly the emotional, not statistical, so audiences can understand and some relate to the speaker better. An evaluation form on the presentation, new information received and their reaction is handed out to each person that hears the story.

The speaker is paid a $30.00 honorarium for each presentation and if it is out of town they receive mileage.

Housing

CMHA Alberta East Central offers a number of Housing programs. Read more below.

Assertive Outreach Program

The Assertive Outreach Program is for individuals 16 years of age and over who are in immediate need and who may not be reached by existing mental health or community support services (or who are unaware of those that exist). Clients are offered one-on-one counseling, financial assistance, help in attaining medication, and basic needs such as clothing, food, shelter, and medical care. This is for people who may have "fallen through the cracks" because of difficulties following treatment or a diagnosis that makes accessing treatment a challenge.

Individual Support Services

This program is for individuals over the age of 16 with severe and persistent mental illness who also have a developmental disability or a brain injury and wish to live more independently.

Residential Program

This program is for individuals over the age of eighteen with a severe and persistent mental illness. Individuals must be willing to work in cooperation with an Independent Living Skills Worker. Individuals must want to live in a shared living arrangement and be able to get along with others.
