Over the past 60 years, our local Canadian Mental Health Association has built a community of support for people living with mental health challenges. From education to housing to employment, we are here for more than 2,000 people in our community. Our youngest participant is 7. Our oldest is over 75. Every day, we gather together to live our experiences and manage our struggles. We cook and share meals, we run social enterprises, we explore the beauty of nature, we educate and we learn. Every day, we strive to shine a light on mental health and come together as a caring community to empower and support those who live with mental health challenges and their families who care for them. Mental health begins where we work, live, and play. While we focus on critical support services, we also lead with a new direction to empower organizations, companies and individuals to live better lives by addressing mental health and wellness issues in the workplace, at home and in the community.  For more information please visit our website at: www.vernon.cmha.bc.ca
