community coalition

In September 2020, a coalition representing the health, education, recreation, faith, social services, voluntary, business and government sectors came together in response to the tragic suicide of a local youth.  After several structured conversations, regarding youth aggression and safety, a partnership was formed with the intention of making a difference in the way our adult community responds to these concerning matters. 

 

It was determined that for the community to know how best to serve youth, we must ask youth how safe they currently feel in the community - from a physical, emotional, social, and mental health perspective.  In the spring of 2021, the Chestermere and Area Community Coalition was fortunate to have been awarded a Canadian Mental Health Association – Rural Mental Health Project grant to undertake a survey of both youth and those who care for youth.

Youth Survey

The Chestermere and Area Community Coalition is currently consulting with youth and the adults who care for them, regarding their perceptions about youth physical, social, emotional, and mental safety in our community.

 

Two surveys are being administered (one for youth through local schools and the other for adults through the community) to help determine a course of action that will positively shift our community culture to one that is more youth friendly.
