Advocacy & Support

 

At Capital Region Mental Health and Addictions Association, we aim to provide support for persons with mental illness & their families.

 

We believe:

  • Persons with long-term mental health or addictions problems have the right to appropriate care, treatment and rehabilitation within the least restrictive environment. They have the right to remain in their own community whenever possible. 

  

  • Government, caregivers, the voluntary sector, and individuals must work together to improve the quality of life for mental health consumers. 

  

  • Continuing public education is necessary to sensitize society and to fight the stigma of chronic mental illness. 

  

  • Engaging the community and conversations about mental health are important in improving the relationship between systems of support and those living with a mental health barrier.
