We believe everyone deserves to be mentally healthy and live in a healthy community. By offering community-based mental health education, services, and supports for all ages, CMHA, Vancouver-Fraser contributes to the long-term health and well-being of our communities. We have three pillars of work:
- Wellness and Community Inclusion – We walk alongside people living with mental illness. We support them to reach their hopes and dreams and to live full and contributing lives in their communities.
- Early Intervention and Prevention – We increase young peoples’ mental health knowledge while developing their skills to maintain positive mental health and to ask for help when they need it.
- Mental Health Promotion – Mental health includes habits and behaviours that build positive mental health, social support networks we can count on and having a strong connection to our community. We help people with these aspects of living a mentally healthy life and reduce the stigma related to mental illness.
