Silver Linings Foundation

Calgary Silver Linings Foundation (CSLF) is a registered charity that was founded by parents of loved ones who developed eating disorders, mental health specialists and community leaders. Currently, we offer 8-week professionally-facilitated support groups throughout the year, for individuals with eating disorders (18 years and older) and a separate group for parents and loved ones of someone with an eating disorder. CSLF's primary mission is to establish the province's first residential eating disorder treatment centre. Having experienced firsthand the devastation of eating disorders, we are committed to seeing that Albertans navigating these grave mental illnesses are able to access the specialized care that they urgently need right here, at home.

The Grief Toolbox

When it comes to dealing with grief, it can be a challenge to find the resources we need to educate ourselves and our loved ones on what is happening and how to best keep going forward. Having been down this road, we want to give back. We want to reach out to those who are earlier on this road. We cannot make your pain go away, nor can we provide answers for you. What we can do is help you to find the tools that you need to work through your grief journey. Thus was born The Grief Toolbox. The Grief Toolbox is an ambitious project. Its goal is to be an all-encompassing place for grief tools: a singular area where a person can find all the resources they need to help them with that grief that neither time nor money can solve. We here at the Grief Toolbox understand that needs change as we go from the raw encompassing pain of the first year to the stark reality of the second year, and then to the growth and reinventing ourselves of the middle years to the acceptance and blessing that now coexists with the pain and love that will always be a part of our life. Grief, in our opinion, falls into two categories: grief that can be solved with time or money, and grief that can not be solved. If you leave your favorite coat on a plane, with time and money you can replace it and the grief will slowly fade. However, with the loss of a loved one - whether a spouse, a parent, a child or a sibling - no time and no amount of money will make this grief go away.  (Read More...)
