Mental Health for All. Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Calgary Region is part of Canada's most established national mental health organizations, the Canadian Mental Health Association. CMHA facilitates access to resources people require to maintain and improve mental health and community integration, build resilience and support recovery from mental illness and addiction.
CMHA Calgary Region builds awareness and provides education, advocacy and support for individuals and families living with mental illness, addiction, or a loss by suicide. We provide community-based support programs, including supportive and independent living, homeless outreach, aboriginal outreach, suicide bereavement support and peer support programs for families and individuals. We work closely with other community organizations to bridge gaps in the mental health care system and facilitate access to important services and resources.
One in five people experience a mental disorder each year and most of us know someone who has faced a mental health challenge or concern. CMHA Calgary Region strives to improve public understanding of mental health issues at home, in the community and in the workplace through community education, advocacy and mental health awareness initiatives.
Reaching 32,000 people directly each year, CMHA Calgary Region is a not-for-profit, charitable organization. Established in 1955, we are an independent branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association (est. 1918), one of Canada's oldest national voluntary organizations.
