The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), founded in 1918, is a nationwide, charitable organization that promotes mental health for all. Over the past century, CMHA has grown to provide mental health services and supports across Canada in over 330 communities, with our local branch, CMHA Toronto, established in 1953. Since then, our branch has grown to operate through 14 sites across the city, employing over 350 full-time staff and serving over 10,000 individuals each year.
As a leading community-based mental health agency, CMHA Toronto is committed to providing services and supports for individuals experiencing mental health issues in the city of Toronto. CMHA Toronto supports individuals’ mental health recovery through a broad range of services in the community as well as a variety of social, educational, specialized and internal programs. We serve all members of our diverse community, including those of different race, culture, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability and age.
Our goal is to support the resilience and recovery of individuals experiencing mental health issues by helping them to live in the community in clean, safe, affordable accommodation; work in the community in paid employment or volunteer activities; and belong in the community as engaged, valued and contributing members. We know that a place to live, meaningful work and a caring community are integral to recovery.
