Canvas Health is dedicated to offering hope and help to children, adolescents, adults, the elderly and families who struggle with aging, transportation, chemical and mental health, and domestic and sexual abuse.
In 2011, Canvas Health, in partnership with Carlton County, launched a TXT4LIFE pilot program for youth in crisis. The TXT4Life program uses texting as a way for those in crisis or contemplating suicide to reach out and ask for help. Today, TXT4Life is an award-winning, innovative program that has received the attention and support from the state Legislature, which has allocated money to begin rolling out the program statewide.
