Mental health information, referral or support


CMHA BC is a volunteer-driven organization that depends on volunteers like you to help us to develop our vision and provide services.

Studies show that regular volunteer activity can have a positive effect on mental and physical health. Volunteering with CMHA provides the opportunity to build skills, learn more about mental health and meet new people, while helping build a more caring community. Because of the benefits of volunteering, we especially encourage those personally affected by mental illness to volunteer.
