Mental Health Canada – many programs, meet people where they are
“Mental health advocacy is a service we provide, but if it’s not the service you need, we help direct you to the help you need. “
“There is no wrong door and we can open a door to fit where you need to be,” Chenery says. “It could be our services or other services. Our expertise is to coordinate and connect people, whether it’s mental health, financial support, recreation – all of which fall under mental health – whether on the spectrum of treatment or social supports. We’re almost a one-stop-shop for people to find the service or help they need.
An important point Chenery points out is that “asking for help can be difficult, but finding the right help shouldn’t be.”
CMHA wants you to know that if you are having a hard time you can reach out and they are there to help you in a multitude of ways. Chenery assures everyone that there are many different programs – whether you’re going through a crisis, looking to improve or improve your situation, or looking for resources that provide stability – Mental Health Canada is your first point of contact.
Chenery encourages anyone overwhelmed by life’s issues to reach out.
“CMHA is part of your solution because we are often the experts in helping people find the right support when they need it – sometimes it’s internal to Mental Health Canada and sometimes you need to be referred to another agency. , or you need subsidized advice. No matter what is going on in your life, if you feel like you need to reach out, please reach out. There is no crisis that is too small and no problem that we will not take seriously or listen to.
