“Mental health is a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her and his community.” – World Health Organization
CMHA was established in the South Okanagan Similkameen in 1991. We are committed to working with our communities so they can become more mentally healthy. That means providing programs that increase resilience, awareness, and intervention in our workplaces, organizations, communities and homes.
We want to work with you to help meet your needs. If you don’t find what you are looking for, contact us and we would love to help you.
Our community programs are aimed at increasing well-being and/or ability and willingness to intervene in emergencies.
