Improving Access to Help

Strengthening Mental Health Resources in Communities Across Canada

Across Canada, millions of individuals face mental health challenges and all too often don’t get the help they need. By supporting community-centric services, we can help ensure that individuals have access to the help they need quickly and easily.
