Changing the way we think about mental health and addictions
Mental health begins where you live, learn, work and play. We know that access to employment, housing, and mental health services – and removing barriers such as stigma and discrimination – are important public issues that touch the lives of people living with mental illnesses and addictions.
We also know that the sooner people are able to access help for mental illnesses and addictions, the better their chances for living healthy and fulfilling lives.
That’s why CMHA wants to spark a conversation about the need for early intervention for mental illness and addiction.
We believe all British Columbians should receive timely care for mental health and addictions before they are in crisis.
Mental health starts in the community. It really does start where we live, learn, work and play.
