Work With Us

The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) is the most established, most extensive community mental health organization in Canada providing a full scope of mental health and addictions services for over 100 years. As the nationwide leader and champion for mental health, we facilitate access to the resources people require to maintain and improve mental health and community integration, build resilience, and support recovery from mental illness and addiction.

CMHA York Region South Simcoe (CMHA-YRSS) is one of the fastest growing branches of the Canadian Mental Health Association with around 350 staff and 100 volunteers. We offer 30+ publicly funded programs and services for youth (12+), adults and family caregivers. Last year we provided mental health and addictions services to more than 17,000 individuals.

Our community is filled with innovators who create change, professionals who deliver excellence, influencers who create impact, and passionate, determined people who are creating our vision of Mental Health for All.
