About Canadian Mental Health Association:
Founded in 1918, The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), National is a charity that facilitates access to the resources people require to maintain and improve their mental health, integrate into the community, build resilience, and support recovery from mental illness. CMHA National is the nationwide leader and champion for mental health and delivers on its mission through a federated structure consisting of 105+ incorporated autonomous community and provincial branches across Canada – each with its own Board of Directors and charitable registration number.
CMHA National improves the mental health literacy of Canadians through programs such as its Mental Health Week, a nationally recognized health awareness week held annually the first week of May, on-line information and tools, and targeted programs in key settings such as workplaces. In addition, CMHA National influences the design and implementation of policies and services related to mental health, mental illness and addiction.
CMHA’s community and provincial divisions and branches/regions assist in improving mental health literacy and influencing policies and services while delivering services and supports such as suicide prevention services, housing support programs, children and youth programs, and employment and vocational services.
