Walk to support men in Alberta

 

Canadian Centre for Men and Families (CCMF) Alberta supports men through relationship distress and helps equip them to create a better future for themselves and their families.

Footsteps for Fathers brings men, families, and communities together to raise awareness about the distress that men experience when relationship breakdown occurs.

We will walk together on Father’s Day and CCMF Alberta is thrilled to have your support!  

Join our community of people who believe that men deserve the best possible chance to be heard, understood, and live to their potential.

HOW WE WORK

Our programs and approach to engaging with our clients are grounded in these guiding principles: 

  • compassion
  • belonging
  • agency for men

These programs equip men to manage stressful situations, rebuild themselves, and minimize the chances of escalating to an acute mental health crisis.

OUR IMPACT

Over the last year, CCMF Alberta has helped hundreds of men improve their mental health.

  • over 440 counselling sessions
  • nearly 100 individuals in peer support
  • 90+ trauma recovery clients
  • over 60 legal consults

We have been operating in Alberta since 2016 as the local branch of a national charity.

“My focus on positive parenting practices has been heightened.”

Improving men’s mental health empowers them to be engaged dadssafer workers, and contributing members of their communities.

THE NEED IS GREAT

Men face the realities of relationship breakdown in a way that is unique.

CCMF Alberta has seen a 6-fold increase in client inquiries over the last two years.

With worsened mental health compared to before the pandemic, we expect this trend of growing need to continue.

“I am not alone. Just knowing others have gone through this is somehow empowering.”
