About the Regina Branch
CMHA Regina Branch offers programming for over 1300 registered members. Our members are individuals managing a life with a mental illness who often experience barriers. These barriers may include low self-esteem and confidence, social isolation, and poor access to education and employment.
It is the hope of CMHA to assist those with these barriers to gain an improved quality of life. Such a life includes meaningful work, adequate income, accessible education and training, enjoyable recreational activities, friendship, and fun with others.
CMHA assists its members in obtaining this quality of life through an integrated community-based group of programs, dedicated to the recovery of those with mental illness. We assist in the recovery process, moving the individual from withdrawal to engagement and active participation in life.
