The Canadian Mental Health Association

Founded in 1918, the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) is the most established, most extensive community mental health organization in Canada. Through a presence in more than 330 communities across every province and one territory, CMHA provides advocacy, programs and resources that help to prevent mental health problems and illnesses, support recovery and resilience, and enable all Canadians to flourish and thrive.

With one national office, 11 divisions in all provinces and one territory, and 75 community-based branches/regions, we provide services and supports to over 1.3 million Canadians through the combined efforts of more than 5,000 staff and 11,000 volunteers.

The CMHA tackles many Mental Health issues, one of which is eating disorders. They offer help to the person in need, but also to the family who is often forgotten about. There is no issue to big or small. Everyone deserves to live happy and healthy life not only from the neck down. It is organizations like the CMHA that aim to make this a reality.
