Lethbridge mental health unit receives record-breaking boost from community donations

Renovations to Chinook Regional Hospital’s (CRH) mental health unit just received a $352,000 boost thanks to support from the community.

A record-breaking number of donations were received on Thursday during the Chinook Regional Hospital Foundation’s annual Care from the Heart Day Radio-a-thon.

Colin Zeiber, a senior operating officer with Alberta Health Services South Zone, said the community’s contribution during the event will go a long way and recognizes the importance of these mental health services in Lethbridge.

“It shows that southern Albertans are really committed to providing good addictions and mental health treatment,” Zeiber said.

“It shows that society in general is starting to accept that mental health impacts many of us, if not all of us in some form.”
