You can make mental health matter. There are many ways you can help CMHA promote the mental health of everyone and support the resiliency and recovery of those experiencing mental illness.
The Canadian Mental Health Association Nova Scotia [CMHA NS] Division recognizes the important role volunteers play in our organization and our community. Without the help and involvement of volunteers, many of the initiatives and events championed by CMHA NS Division would not be possible. We are grateful for the dedication and initiative of our volunteers who unselfishly contribute their time and energy to further our mission.
CMHA NS is currently accepting volunteer applications for:
- General volunteers
- Volunteers with web design experience

CMHA NS CAST Program presents the Cast A Net (CAN) Campaign!
The CMHA NS CAST Program would like to cast a suicide prevention net over Nova Scotia with the CAN campaign, covering the time between World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10th, 2016), Mental Illness Awareness Week (October 3rd – 9th, 2016), World Mental Health Day (October 10th, 2016) & Internal National Survivors of Suicide Loss Day (November 19th, 2016).
The CAN campaign includes awareness events and education and training opportunities. It’s time to break the silence surrounding mental health issues and work together to ensure community members have the supports and resources available to contribute positively to their ongoing mental health.
If interested in volunteering with the CAN campaign, please fill out the contact form here.
