About Our Charity

CMHA Durham has a well-established history serving the Durham community since 1959. It is part of a national association founded in 1918.

CMHA Durham has evolved immensely since the early beginnings in a small house with a staff of two and volunteers. Today, we are an accredited agency (2003, 2006, 2009, 2012) and own a building housed with a wide range of services that address the special needs of the community, such as:

Community Access services

Primary Care and a Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic

Housing and Case Management services

Health Promotion and Public Relations

Rehabilitation and Employment services

Assertive Community Treatment Team (ACT)

Community Treatment Order (CTO) services

Corporate services

CMHA Durham is governed by a volunteer board of directors with an interest in mental health issues. The board is comprised of individuals from a variety of backgrounds.
