We need you to show your support of our work by becoming a member or making a donation. In today’s climate of government cut backs, mental health is low on the overall health priority list. And community-based organizations are low in the mental health priority list.  Without an indication of your support of the value of our work in your community, the services we are currently able to provide to the people who need them will not be able to continue at their current level.

CMHA is one of Canada’s oldest charities; we have been in operation since 1918, but age does not necessarily mean our funding is secure. Your membership adds credibility to our organization. Even though most Canadians recognize our name and have seen our messages, when it comes to getting sponsorship for programs and lobbying governments, sheer numbers have an impact like no other factor.

And the numbers speak for themselves. Statistics show that one in every five Canadians will have a mental health problem at some point in their lives. Chances are, you have a colleague, a family member, or a friend who could benefit from our programs. The insurance industry had a 10% increase in the number of long-term disability claims related to mental illness in just one year (from 1994 - 1995.)


Nationally and in some communities, CMHA has negotiated corporate discount packages, and other painless ways to help us raise funds. We can provide information to you about these programs.

If you use CMHA educational materials, membership will qualify you for a 10% discount on all National Office publications. As your local branch, we can advise you of any additional offers available through our office.

When you become a CMHA member, you become a member locally, provincially, and nationally with just one annual fee.

Membership is portable - if you move in between the renewal date just contact our CMHA office before you move and the new CMHA office when you arrive and you will have a smooth transition.

Free publications - newsletters, media releases, annual reports, and other materials (not normally for sale) are yours for the asking. Our National Office will keep you in tune with the latest advances in mental health in Canada.

Opportunities for personal development - you choose if you want to be an active member and volunteer your time, expertise, or goodwill.

You choose if want to support CMHA’s programs in other ways, financially, by responding to surveys, or writing a letter to your law-makers when needed.
