At CMHA NS, we know that working has significantly more value than a paycheck.
The opportunity to find and maintain safe, sustainable employment has been shown to help stabilize people living with or experiencing a range of mental health conditions. Employment promotes growth and stability and provides daily structure and meaningful experiences.
The At Work program connects Nova Scotians living with a mental illness, mental health challenges or substance use disorder who are unemployed or under-employed to workplaces that match their strengths, skills, and needs as a way to build resilience and bring experienced employees to workplaces.
At Work is a national program delivered by the Canadian Mental Health Association in communities across Canada, including Nova Scotia.
This free program is available to any Nova Scotian over the age of sixteen who is:
- Legally entitled to work in Canada
- Resides in Nova Scotia
- Unemployed or underemployed
- Lives with a mental illness, mental health challenge or substance use disorder(no diagnosis required)
