Who We Are and What We Do

The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) is a nation-wide charitable mental health and addictions organization, established in 1918. CMHA is comprised of 87 separate entities; there is a National leadership body, 10 Provincial Divisions (one) in each province, 2 special topic Centers of Excellence and 75 community-based Branches across the nation. CMHA mental health and addictions supports and services would not be possible without the committed work of over 5,000 staff, along with the involvement of 11,000 community members that include partners, volunteers, and stakeholders.

Canadian Mental Health Associations in Nova Scotia are the oldest community-based mental health and addictions charitable organizations in the province, founded in 1908. The CMHA NS Division holds the licence and provides provincial leadership for mental health in Nova Scotia, with the support of 5 CMHA Branches.
