We need Your Support - Donate Today!


It is estimated that there are currently over one million older adults in Canada living with mental health issues. With an ever-increasing population of adults 65+, the urgency of ensuring that older adults have access to the mental health services they deserve and need is palpable. CCSMH is the unique voice in Canada drawing attention specifically to the mental health of older adults.

We are committed to improving the quality of care and support for older adults by working tirelessly to bridge gaps in knowledge and practice, ensuring that the mental health receives the attention it deserves within the realm of aging.

You can be a CCSMH Champion for Change.

There is so much more that we could do with your support!

Our resources are in great demand from health care providers and older adults. To ensure that the CCSMH can continue to meet and enhance these supports your commitment and financial support is so needed.
