Canadian Mental Health Assoc. Peel Dufferin

1 in 5 Canadians experience a mental illness during their lifetime and the remaining 80% of Canadians are affected by a mental illness in family, friends or colleagues.

Today 11 people in Canada will end their life by suicide - 4,000 people every year continue to die by suicide.

This week alone, 500,000 Canadians will not go to work because of a mental health problem.

In Ontario alone, the burden of mental illness and addiction is 1.5 times higher than all cancers put together and more than 7 times that of all infectious diseases.

In one year CMHA Peel Dufferin had more than 56,000 contacts with clients in the community.

By supporting CMHA Peel Dufferin you are in fact supporting your family, your friends, your neighbours and your colleagues – those “one in five Canadians” who will need the information, support and services that we provide. Thank you!
