The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) is a national voluntary organization that is committed to promoting the mental health of all Canadians and addressing all aspects of mental health and mental illness. Founded in 1918, the association currently has a division office in each province and territory in Canada as well as approximately 135 local branches in communities of all sizes throughout the country. CMHA's grassroots programs are meant to ensure that people with mental illness find the necessary help to cope with crisis, regain confidence, and return to their communities, families, and jobs. The association combats mental health problems and emotional disorders by providing research and information services; sponsoring research projects; conducting workshops and seminars; and offering a variety of publications including a pamphlet series, a quarterly newsletter, and policy statements. In addition, the CMHA offers housing and employment services; sponsors public education campaigns for the community, including Canada's Mental Health Week; and provides peer support and recreation services for people affected by mental illness. The association also acts as a social advocate to encourage public action and commitment to strengthening community mental health services, legislation, and policies affecting services.
