The Pak Banker - - 6BUSINESS -

RBC to­day an­nounced a $250,000 do­na­tion to the Cal­gary-based Child Ad­vo­cacy Cen­tre (CAC) from the RBC Chil­dren’s Men­tal Health Project. This fund­ing will sup­port CAC in cre­at­ing a Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence in the area of child abuse. The long term ef­fects of child­hood abuse can cause a range of men­tal health is­sues from de­pres­sion and anx­i­ety to devel­op­men­tal de­lays. Chil­dren who are or were abused are also at a much greater risk of learn­ing to cope by de­vel­op­ing sig­nif­i­cant emo­tional and ad­just­ment prob­lems. With a fo­cus on best prac­tices, re­search, com­mu­nity aware­ness, train­ing and ed­u­ca­tion, CAC is a new non-profit so­ci­ety started by five part­ners: Cal­gary Po­lice Ser­vices, Cal­gary and Area Child and Fam­ily Ser­vices Author­ity.
