Mental health may be the most important cause of our time.
Even before the pandemic, the mental health care system in Canada was not meeting people’s needs. Every year 1.6 million people in Canada already reported not getting the mental health care they need. With the pandemic, the stresses are greater, and the needs are rising.
Isolation, economic insecurity and stress are all contributing to an “echo pandemic” of mental health issues.
By becoming a partner with CMHA you can help stop the echo.
Good mental health is good business.
One in five Canadians will experience a mental health issue in any normal year. But five in five Canadians have mental health—you, your employees, your customers and clients. We all need to take care of it. And sometimes we need help.
By partnering with CMHA, you signal your support for mental health to all your stakeholders. CMHA is the most established, most extensive community mental health organization in Canada. We can craft a custom partnership plan that aligns with your brand and your business while promoting mental health for all.
Be a Leader for Mental Health
There are many ways to align your brand with mental health.
An Outright Gift
An unrestricted yearly donation to CMHA helps shore up mental health across the country by addressing the area of greatest need or nimbly adapting to emergent issues.
A Directed Gift
CMHA supports mental health for all through a wide variety of targeted and evidence-based programs and services. We can help you direct your support to the impact area best aligned with your business.
Cause Marketing and Point of Sale Campaigns
Each and every one of us has mental health, whether or not we have a mental illness. Donating a portion of sales or proceeds or soliciting a point-of-sale donation are effective ways to show that you support mental health for all.
Event and Campaign Sponsorship
By becoming an event or campaign sponsor, you can support mental health while connecting to new audiences. CMHA signature initiatives include Ride Don’t Hide, the national Mental Health for All Conference, and Mental Health Week. CMHA can help you deliver on your business goals with a tailored and co-designed sponsorship opportunity.
Corporate Fundraising for CMHA
Become a mental health hero by raising funds on behalf of CMHA. Create your own company event or campaign to raise funds and have fun. Corporate fundraising can be internal – to engage your employees in the cause – or external, demonstrating your commitment to your clients and customers. CMHA can help with tools, tips, and tricks for success.
Employee Matching and Payroll Deduction
Show your commitment to mental health by honouring your employees with a matching donation. We can help you set up a matching gift program and/or charitable donations via payroll deduction.
We’re better when we work together.
