Act for Mental Health is an advocacy campaign led by the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) that rallies Canadians to press our leaders for universal mental health care. A growing number of Canadian organizations stand together in asking for the same thing: to make mental health and substance use health care available to everyone under public health insurance.
For people in Canada, Act for Mental Health is a chance to stand up, be counted, and use our voices to press our leaders for universal mental health care. Care that serves and supports every single one of us. Care that enables us all to thrive. Act for Mental Health is a campaign, a rallying cry, a movement for mental health care that is truly universal.
Canada's universal healthcare system isn’t universal. We need to #ActForMentalHealth and ensure all Canadians can receive care when and where they need it.
