The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) is one of the oldest continuing voluntary health organizations in Canada. This year, we celebrate our 100th anniversary as the nation-wide leader and champion for mental health.
CMHA began existence as the Canadian National Committee for Mental Hygiene (CNCMH), founded by Dr. Clarence M. Hincks and Clifford W. Beers in January 26, 1918. Hincks was very interested in the field because he himself had experienced mental illness.
