Our Vision: mentally healthy people in a healthy society
The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) is the nation-wide leader and champion for mental health in Canada. Founded in 1918, CMHA has grown to over 135 branches in communities across Canada. Our vision is mentally healthy people in a healthy society. We are dedicated to supporting resilience and recovery for people with lived experience of mental illness and their families, and promoting mental health for all. We accomplish this through advocacy, education, community-based research and services.
While continuing to provide critical support services, we work to empower organizations and individuals to improve mental health in the workplace, at home, and in the community because mental health begins where we work, live, and play.
Bigger Impact, Greater Need
Miles for Mental Health has been proudly hosted by CMHA Simon Fraser Branch. Between 2014-2015 Simon Fraser along with CMHA Delta, and Vancouver-Burnaby amalgamated into a new single branch; CMHA Vancouver-Fraser. This change means reduced administration and operations costs as well as a single focus to support all people and their families affected by mental illness within the Vancouver-Fraser region. This means your donations during Miles for Mental Health not only go further but it also means our need for your generous financial support is now even greater.
