Statistics say that mental illness indirectly affects all Canadians at some time through a family member, friend or colleague. What if that person is someone you love? In any given year, 1 in 5 people in Canada will personally experience a mental health problem or illness. What if that person is you?
Previously, when an individual was seeking addiction or mental health support in Edmonton, there were many doors to walk through, and many incredible services to choose from, but it was difficult for patients to determine which door was the right door to walk through for help.
All of that has now changed with the opening of the Addiction & Mental Health Access 24/7 clinic thanks largely in part to donors of the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation. Donors have allowed for the creation of a new single access point for addiction and mental health services in the Edmonton Zone to become a reality.
Addiction and Mental Health (AMH) Access 24/7 has consolidated close to one hundred community access points into one front door where patients and families have streamlined access to multiple services, making it easier for patients to navigate the system.
In its first three months of operation, the centre fielded more than 18,000 calls to the call centre and saw more than 1,000 walk-in patients. The need for the clinic is clear.
AMH Access 24/7 is located across the street from the Royal Alexandra Hospital’s Emergency Department in Anderson Hall. If you or someone you know needs support please come in or call 780-424-2424 any time, any day of the year.
