Ryan Milne, CASA Child, Adolescent and Family Mental Health
This past Tuesday we heard from Ryan Milne, a Finance and Development officer for the northern Alberta branch of the Child, Adolescent and Family Mental Health Association (CASA). CASA is the Alberta Health Services sponsored provider of mental health services for children and adolescents for all families in northern Alberta. It is known that up to seventy percent of adults with mental health problems, have had that problem since childhood.
CASA was founded in 1991 and is a community based non-profit organisation. They currently provide services for 4300 children and their families in northern Alberta. They have about one hundred fifty professionals from many various professional disciplines. They operate from four locations in the Edmonton area and also have a travelling team of specialists who serve outlying areas. One of their facilities is a residential facility with nineteen beds in Sherwood Park for high school age clients. They provide clinical services for children from birth to eighteen years of age. All of heir clients are referred to them through the health care system. They provide twenty-two types of specialised programs for their clients. Their programs include infant and preschool services, school age services, specialty services such as family therapy, day programs, and the addiction and mental health program. Their programs are based on the four pillars of quality care, access, sustainability and partnerships with research and health providers. They received fourteen million dollars last year to provide services for a population of three point four million.
Their government funding is based solely on intake numbers and is not tied to the services provided, as these can change over time. They are always looking for new sources of funding and would like to be able to fund a research chair based at the University of Alberta, Edmonton. It would provide funding for three researchers to develop a front-line program to address mental health for children. They would also like to be able to fund a shift to electronic record keeping for all of their facilities.
This was a very interesting and enlightening presentation that gave reason for thought to all of us, as we realise what an enormous undertaking they have made. Any and all donations towards their programs would be very welcome.

Here is another nice blast from the past.

Mustard Seed needs volunteers
We received the following request for help from Mustard Seed:
Please be mindfull that Caroline, AB is approx. 300 km from Edmonton and that all volunteers MUST have prior 'Vulnerable Persons' police clearance as per our district's insurance regulations.

Dear Volunteers,


This year we embarked on a very special project to send youth to camp as many of our facilities across Alberta serve families in need and we learned having their children attend camp would be a blessing to them this summer. Donors have contributed thousands of dollars to send 50 kids to Camp Caroline. 


Unfortunately we hit a road block with our Edmonton drivers taking the youth to camp for two weeks of the summer so we're emailing you to see if this is something you'd consider doing for youth we're working with. 


We need a driver(s) for:

  • Sunday, July 29th 1:30pm Departure time, 7:00pm Return to Edmonton - Drop youth off
  • Friday, August 3rd 3:30pm Departure time, 8:30pm Return to Edmonton - Pick youth up
  • Sunday, August 19th 1:30pm Departure time, 7:00pm Return to Edmonton - Drop youth off
  • Friday, August 24th 1:30pm Departure time, 7:00pm Return to Edmonton - Drop youth off

Because we are transporting youth, it's most ideal to partner our drivers with another volunteer, so ideally we're looking for 2 people to ride with the children. These weeks have no more than 4 youth attending and we are happy to arrange payment for gas/mileage and cover all other outstanding logistical details. 


If you and your partner, friend or other companion would consider to give an evening or two to serve these children, we would love to hear from you and processes you to do so! Simply reply to this email or give my cell a call as listed in the signature below. We are coordinating this effort out of our Calgary office, so please do not be confused about the long distance call. 


Thank you for reading and considering to help!
