Canadians are greatly affected by mental illness and face many questions, challenges and barriers. CAMIMH strives to ensure people with mental illness, their families and caregivers have the supports, programs and resources available to them to recover from mental illness and participate fully in all aspects of life.

CAMIMH works to improve services and supports through advocating for improved government policies, private industry practices and by improving public perceptions and engagement in mental illness and mental health in ways that will benefit people affected by mental illness.
