CMHA Kelowna Branch Focus
The Canadian Mental Health Association Kelowna and District Branch was founded in 1956 and is dedicated to the promotion of mental health of all. No matter how old or how young, we provide support for families and individuals through programs that promote positive mental health and support recovery, while championing the elimination of barriers that can prevent people from thriving.
We do this through:
- Building Homes
- Building Lives
- Building Community
CMHA Kelowna is part of a network of more than 80 Canadian Mental Health Association branches across the country. Each year we provide services and supports to more than 1.3 million Canadians through the combined efforts of more than 11,000 volunteers and staff in over 330 communities.
Founded in 1918, the Canadian Mental Health Association is one of the oldest continuing voluntary health and not for profit organizations in Canada.
As a nation-wide, voluntary organization, the Canadian Mental Health Association promotes the mental health of all and supports the resilience and recovery of people experiencing mental illness. The CMHA accomplishes this mission through advocacy, education, research and service.
