Recovery Is Right Around The Corner
The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), founded in 1918, is one of the oldest voluntary organizations in Canada. The Thunder Bay Branch was first organized in 1955 by a volunteer group of citizens concerned about a lack of community services and public awareness for mental health. In 1975, the Thunder Bay Branch was officially chartered as a branch of the national organization. Today they are an accredited organization providing a comprehensive range of recovery based mental health services. CMHA has a vision for an inclusive community that promotes emotional wellbeing, human dignity and social justice where people are valued and opportunities in all aspects of life are available to everyone. As such it is committed to supporting individual recovery and promoting mental wellness within families and communities.
