This week's reflection

You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.

Mental Health

Covenant Health is one of Alberta’s leading providers of mental health services.

 Here’s how we do it:

  • We operate 250 beds in the province dedicated to serving those with mental illness.
  • We are a significant provider of care for seniors with dementia.
  • In 2010, Covenant Health responded to a growing need and opened Villa Caritas, Alberta’s largest provider of geriatric mental health services. It is the largest facility to provide inpatient acute care to a geriatric mental health population in Alberta.
  • All of Edmonton's community geriatric psychiatric programs have been consolidated under Covenant Health.
  • The Grey Nuns Community Hospital has one of the only two psychiatric intensive care units in Edmonton, providing care for patients through the most acute phase of their mental illness.
