CMHA - Edmonton
March 13th, 2022 - Present
Last Updated: Aug 2023
Our partnership with CMHA Edmonton started after our partnership with York and South Simcoe & Niagara. We've been working with the Edmonton Region since November 30th 2021. We are still actively running this campaign!
For the Edmonton Region, we've had the pleasure of working with Alex Abboud who is the Senior Director of Fund Development, and his team. They're always eager to offer assistance, and are often in communication with customers on where and when to find us! We are so appreciative of their involvement and commitment to our partnership, as well as their passion for Mental Health as a whole. We are very grateful for this partnership. It has given our team insight into all that CMHA does; not only on a large scale nationally, but also into how they break that down on a smaller scale by offering targeted programs and services within individual regions. It's a perfect example of how divided efforts work together to build success on a united front.
Our "Mental Health Matters" collection is currently active, and can be picked up in person at one of our pop-up events. If you're in the area and would like to know where we are this week, reach out to us via our contact page and we'll get back to you within a few hours. It can also be purchased in the "Shop" section of or website when it is active.
It is a known statistic that in any given year, 1 in 5 people in Canada will personally experience a mental health problem or illness. One of the top reasons that we inquired about working with CMHA this season was due to the current struggles we are all facing as a collective. With the on-going Covid-19 pandemic, many people are feeling increased levels of stress, anxiety, worry, loneliness & isolation. As always, we are honoured to be a part of the fundraising team for CMHA Edmonton. We know they do their best to support their community, and we're always happy to help wherever we can.
If you'd like more information or would like to make a donation to CMHA Niagara directly, we encourage you to visit their website.
If you would like to make a donation within your own community, we advise that research which CMHA operates within your region and make a donation there. You can also make a donation to CMHA National on their website.
