The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), founded in 1918, is one of the oldest voluntary organizations in Canada. Each year we provide direct service to more than 100,000 Canadians through the combined efforts of more than 10,000 volunteers and staff across Canada in more than 120 communities.
As a nation-wide, voluntary organization, the Canadian Mental Health Association promotes the mental health of all and supports the resilience and recover of people experiencing mental illness. The CMHA accomplishes this mission through advocacy, education, research, and service.
CMHA branches across Canada provide a wide range of innovative services and supports to people who experience mental illness, and their families. These services are tailored to the needs and resources of the communities where they are based. One of the core goals of these services is to help people with mental illness develop the personal tools to lead meaningful and productive lives.
Mental Health Works trainers are given extensive training and ongoing professional development in order to deliver workplace mental health training and workshops to businesses across Canada. Our trainers provide practical workplace mental health training to executives, human resources personnel, occupational health professionals, managers, supervisors, union reps and employees.
They come from a variety of backgrounds including business, consulting, and healthcare. All trainers are employed or contracted by CHMAs across the country. Our trainers have a high skill set and are experts in workplace mental health. They are a diverse group, but the one thing that is common among each of them is a dedication and passion to the Mental Health Works program. We offer workshops in English and French.
