As a core service provider, we must exemplify the high-performing, equity-enabling, and user-centred principles required of the entire system.
The pandemic has shone a light on limitations to mental health services. Albertans have experienced deteriorating mental health since the onset of the pandemic, and those with pre-existing mental health concerns as well as marginalized and underserved communities are disproportionately impacted. The pandemic has forced a much-needed revaluation of current approaches to mental health care. As mental health leaders, we must first look inward and undertake our own internal transformation so we can better position ourselves within a transforming industry landscape.
The Strategic Plan 2021 – 2024 is our roadmap to a future of more effective, more efficient, and more accessible mental health care for all.
To ensure that all people experience good mental health and well-being.
We want all people to see themselves represented and served by CMHA. We recognize a diverse range of mental health approaches.
We are leaders. We value action over talk. We will innovate and think ahead to continue to address and improve mental health.
We lead with the heart. We are compassionate, empathetic, and caring. We approach our mission with love and kindness.
We have long fought to improve the state of mental health, but our work is not done. We are champions of social justice. We remain as committed as ever to our task.
We mobilize and marshal resources, partners, and people to come together to realize necessary changes in our communities and in the mental health system.
