CMHA is a charity – in fact we are one of Canada’s oldest charitable organizations. We rely on the financial support of corporations, foundations, individuals and other groups who believe in our work. Throughout the organization, CMHA also receives government support for specific programs and services.
You can make mental health matter. There are many ways you can help CMHA promote the mental health of everyone and support the resiliency and recovery of those experiencing mental illness.
