Women 7 Wellness logo

Women & Wellness is a unique charity event that supports the important work of the Canadian Mental Health Association of New Brunswick (CMHA of NB), backed by generous sponsors and dedicated volunteers. The money raised at the Fredericton event will help the CMHA of New Brunswick deliver programs that support people with mental illness and their caregivers as well as to educating the public on mental health issues.


After her brother died by Suicide, Helen MacDonnell founded Women & Wellness. She realized change wouldn’t come unless people started to talk about Mental Illness.  Helen took action and in January 2004, she hosted a kitchen party, inviting 54 women into her home to discuss mental illness and be reminded to take care of their own health. This first Women & Wellness® evening raised $1,250 for the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA).


Over the past ten years, the fundraiser has received over $1,000,000 in donations and sponsorship’s and has caught the attention of CMHAs from coast to coast.


So start saving your change for a fun filled evening!!
