Alberta Family Wellness Initiative (AFWI)

Palix Foundation, June 2017

The Alberta Family Wellness Initiative (AFWI) is a dynamic, responsive program that continuously evolves by listening carefully to feedback and adapting to best achieve its ultimate goal: to contribute to improving outcomes in health and well-being for children and families across Alberta. When it launched the AFWI in 2007, the leadership of the Palix (formerly Norlien) Foundation was convinced that Alberta could significantly improve its outcomes in the prevention and treatment of addiction and the promotion of mental health by better applying the latest scientific knowledge.
