“The Case for Diversity” project reviewed 408 studies involving 41,920 people, offering “significant evidence” that culturally adapted therapies are more effective than programs targeting culturally mixed groups.
“Diversity has been a hallmark of contemporary Canadian society and it should be foundational to the planning and delivery of mental health services at all levels,” the report concludes. “Meeting the needs of IRER [immigrant, refugee, ethno-cultural and racialized] populations is an urgent priority for the Canadian mental health system and its service providers.”

At a trying time like this in Northern Alberta, and for the people of Fort McMurray and surrounding communities, PCHS recognizes the challenges and stressors that evacuees and first responders are facing.
PCHS pledges to support affected individuals to the best of our abilities by connecting them to services as required, and through our Sahara Family Supportive Counseling. We are proud of being an Alberta organization, and proud to stand with so many generous Albertans rallying to help.
Our thoughts are with all of those involved–evacuees, first responders and government officials seeking to provide direction and guidance at this time.
Not only do net ticket proceeds help us with directly adding 650 hours to our Sahara Supportive Counseling Program (our core program), but the silent auction helped us raise another $6000!
