The Canadian Mental Health Association, Newfoundland and Labrador Division (CMHA-NL), is a voluntary, non-profit, charitable organization established in 1964 to promote a better understanding of mental health and mental illness in the province. As a division of the national Canadian Mental Health Association, our mission is to facilitate access to the resources people require to maintain and improve mental health and community integration, build resilience, and support recovery from mental illness. This mission is accomplished through building capacity, influencing policy, providing services, and developing resources. CMHA-NL division's head office is in St. John's, and we also have two new regional offices located in Grand Falls-Windsor (Central) and Stephenville (Western). We are governed by a volunteer board of directors from all over the province.
