Energize Don't Hide 2021 Challenge

The Challenge
Each year 1.6 million Canadians report unmet mental health care needs, and the demand for services has escalated due to the pandemic. The mental health effects of COVID-19—including anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, substance use—will last long after the pandemic has subsided. It costs approximately, $330 for each Canadian to have access to mental health resources in Canada.

Who We Are
CMHA is the most established and extensive community mental health organization in Canada and a national leader in community-based mental health service integration and coordination.

CMHA Calgary creates awareness, educates, and provides support for individuals and families living with a mental health or substance use concern, or a loss by suicide. We provide community-based programs, including supportive and independent living, homeless outreach, suicide bereavement and peer support for families and individuals. We work closely with other community organizations to bridge gaps in the mental health care system and facilitate access to important services and resources.
