Mental Health Commission of Canada
The Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) leads the development and dissemination of innovative programs and tools to support the mental health and wellness of Canadians. Through its unique mandate from the Government of Canada, the MHCC supports federal, provincial, and territorial governments as well as organizations in the implementation of sound public policy.
Funded by Health Canada, the MHCC convenes stakeholders, develops and influences sound public policy, and seeks to inspire collective action. Examples include the justice system, primary health care, workplace, housing, and others that impact the lives of Canadians living with a mental health problem or illness and their families.
Each of its initiatives and projects is led by experts from across the country who bring a variety of perspectives and experience to the table. Consulting with people who have experience living with a mental health problem or illness and their families is a key aspect in all of the MHCC’s work.
The MHCC provides its recommendations to governments, service providers, community leaders and many others, and works with these partners to implement them.
