Mental health in the workplace affects us all, whether we are employers or employees.
When mental health issues are not addressed and treated appropriately, there can be considerable personal and financial costs to individuals and organizations. Fortunately, with prevention, early treatment, and support, many of these costs can be significantly reduced or eliminated entirely.
CMHA offers a variety of workshops and training sessions to improve mental health in the workplace.
We provide employers and employees information, tools, and support to understand the complex nature of creating and maintaining a psychologically safe workplace.
Housing & Residential Support
CMHA Vernon understands the need for supportive and affordable housing as a key part of mental health.
We provide over 140 housing units in our community, including low to moderate income as well as housing for people with mental health issues.
CMHA Vernon provides services that assist the public to gain awareness on how to recognize when a person may be having thoughts of suicide, what to do and where to get the necessary help for them. This is offered through materials, presentations, workshops and services such as the Crisis Line.
The Suicide Prevention Program’s purpose is to build capacity within the community through education and awareness campaigns. The goal is to reduce the stigma associated with the issue of suicide, risk assessments and interventions.
CMHA serves youth aged 7 to 18 offering prevention-based education sessions for youth and youth leaders in school and club settings to address youth substance use, mental health promotion and suicide prevention, equipping youth with knowledge and tools to help manage mental health and wellness through building relationships and providing a knowledge-base of community resources to access help.
