The National Network for Mental Health, which is run by and for mental health consumer/survivors, works to advocate, educate and provide expertise and resources that benefit the Canadian consumer/survivor community.
The focus of our organization is to network with Canadian consumer/survivors, their family and friends, to provide opportunities for resource sharing, information distribution and education on current and emerging mental health issues. The principles of inclusion, informed choice and individuality are the focal point.
The individuality of each consumer/survivor is valued and appreciated. Working toward the common goal of advocating on behalf of the national mental health consumer/survivor community is accomplished by empowering individuals who together create a powerful united voice.
