Who we are


The Canadian Mental Health Association is the provincial leader and champion for mental health. CMHA of NB helps people access the community resources they need to build resilience and support recovery from mental illness.

CMHA of NB is working hard to raise awareness on mental health and provide education on mental illness which in turn helps remove the stigma so people reach out for support without discrimination.

We feel a positive shift in society but there is still much work to do. We are committed to providing quality programs and services and are determined to promote our vision of mentally healthy people in a healthy society.

Evidence in support of the benefits of amalgamation include:

  • The huge success of Mental Health Week events around the province.
  • A stronger and closer relationship with the Provincial Department of Health which has resulted in renewal of our contract for the Regional Community Worker (now called Community Education Coordinators) program
  • Continued success of our flagship events including Mindscapes, Women and Wellness and A Day in Her Shoes
  • CMHA programs reaching more than 25,000 people around the province in the past year
