ATB and Canadian Mental Health Association form strategic partnership

Posted on: 5/9/2018 | Author: Staff

A group of ATB Financial team members toured a new centre dedicated to mental health support in Calgary today. The Centre for Excellence in Recovery and Peer Support is operated by the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) - Calgary Region.

The centre, located at 1040 7 Avenue SW, will be more commonly referred to as Recovery College. The innovative facility will deliver services, on site and remotely, using a trained peer support team.

ATB and CMHA have agreed to a partnership. It will provide more tools and resources for ATB leaders and team members to help them recognize, address and recover from mental health issues.

The two organizations will also explore how best to support Alberta’s growing population of entrepreneurs as they manage the financial pressures of running and growing a business, integrating their life and work and constantly innovating.

“We really think this is an area many entrepreneurs could use some support,” said ATB’s Chief Customer Officer Curtis Stange.

“We can help them with accounts and loans, but our goal is to be more than a bank. We want to see them succeed in all areas of their lives.”

Stange is committed to promoting mental wellness among ATB team members as well. An estimated 100 team members don’t make it to work on any given day because of their mental health. That number only reflects those who declare it. Many more could be impacted by family members, friends and other community members battling mental illness.

Plans to expand the partnership to other parts of Alberta are already in the works.
