Special events like our annual Curl for Mental Health help to increase public awareness, reduce the stigma associated with mental illness; while, raising funds for our much needed community programs and services. We need your help to send a clear message to the general public about the importance of mental health through this day of fun and fundraising!
Mental health and physical health are fundamentally linked, so are mental illness and mental health. Canadian Mental Health Association is the only association in Canada that addresses all aspects of mental health and mental illness. Mental illness has a major impact on our society. Mental illness costs the Canadian economy a staggering $51-billion a year, and each day 500,000 people will miss work due to mental health problems.
