Did you know that one in four British Columbians will experience a mental illness in their lifetime? And many more know someone who is? For those affected, mental illness can have dramatic impacts on work, family, personal, and social life. But, just like physical illnesses, the more you know about preventing mental illness, recognizing symptoms, and knowing when and where to go for help, the better equipped you are to lead a healthier lifestyle.
The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), BC Division exists to promote the mental health of British Columbians and support the resilience and recovery of people experiencing mental illness.
We're part of one of the oldest voluntary organizations in Canada, which provides direct service to more than 100,000 Canadians through the combined efforts of more than 10,000 volunteers and staff across Canada.
