It’s so important that we create opportunities to open up conversations about mental health. Taking action to #GETLOUD, raise awareness, reduce stigma and show support of friends, family and loved ones experiencing mental health issues takes courage and effort. On June 24th, 2018 please join us! Come as an individual or as part of a team with your family, friends or co-workers and speak up and out about a mentally healthy Kelowna so we can continue to help people of all ages access the help and support they need to live their best lives.

CMHA has been in Kelowna since 1956 when it was formed by a small group of individuals who wanted better services for their loved ones. Since that time, we have been providing a full range of supports to people with serious and persistent mental illness and people who have experienced the impact of poverty, homelessness and substance use. We believe that people can and do recover when they play an active, empowered role in their journey. CMHA Kelowna facilitates access to the resources people require to maintain and improve mental health and community integration, build resilience, and support recovery from mental illness.
CMHA Kelowna is the lead agency of Foundry Kelowna – a place where youth aged 12-24 and their families can find easy access to the help they need, when they need it. It is an integrated centre that is transforming how mental health and substance use services are delivered in Kelowna; providing early intervention to support young peoples’ well-being.
CMHA Kelowna’s key areas of service delivery:
Committed to community development, CMHA is dedicated to eradicating the stigma and discrimination that prevents people from accessing the help and hope they need it.
