-A Success!

Over 900 participants, more than 40 partners, and 25 events made the ​first Banff Mental Health and Addiction Week a roaring success on May 5 ​– 10, 2024. Events ranged from intimate gatherings of 8 people to broader ​awareness events of 150 people. Media outlets such as Global News, CTV ​News, Rocky Mountain FM, and Rocky Mountain Outlook covered the ​personal stories of our week’s ambassadors. Residents shared personal ​stories, connected with community and learned more about the mental ​health and addiction services offered in Banff and Lake Louise. Mark ​your 2025 calendar for May 5 – 9, where our community will, once again, ​gather to support those whose struggle is real.

Every person, at one time in their life, experiences bumps along the way. For everyone, it’s different, unique, and personal. That’s why building your own individual toolkit is important.

We’re here to help with preventative activities and programs just for you.

This week is to let you know that the community of Banff cares, that there are moderate and acute resources for you, and that there is hope for a healthy future.

We invite you to amplify the conversation with us during this week and into the future. Let’s keep our community’s wellness as our #1 priority.

Visit here for a line-up of the week’s activities.
