In 2009, Juno Foundation was created with two purposes: to help adolescent girls, young women and their families who are suffering from anxiety-related issues, and to address the shortage of therapists in the Calgary area working with them.
In 2017, we changed our name to Lionheart Foundation. Although we have a new name, our mandate hasn’t changed and we continue to offer support for young women and their families who need access to mental health treatment.
Lionheart Foundation connects mental health practitioners with adolescents and their families who need help overcoming anxiety-related disorders. We also provide training, workshops and research resources, all focused on our successful and proven therapeutic methodologies.
Groups who work with young people play a crucial role in identifying and supporting those who are experiencing anxiety-related issues. We partner with these organizations by providing mental health awareness training and other educational opportunities.

We need your help
As a Foundation, we are proud of what we have accomplished. But we want to do more – and we know more needs to be done.
In Calgary and the surrounding areas, adolescent mental health care remains disjointed and under-resourced. As a Foundation, we want to help address these gaps.
Big or small, your donation will empower adolescent girls and young women in the Calgary area to live healthy, productive lives.
