WHAT WE DO
CMHA-NL Workplace Mental Health Program and our Education Program offer mental health training and educational sessions for individuals, workplaces, schools, and other groups. From two-day certification courses to lunch-and-learns, our qualified facilitators can customize sessions to meet your needs. We also meet requests for information booths at conferences, schools, and other events.
Our Justice Program Case Managers work with individuals involved in the NL corrections system to promote recovery and reduce recidivism. Our team assists members of the Justice Program with a variety of needs, including housing, food security, employment, counseling, and more. Case Managers work with members while incarcerated and following their release for a period of up to 18 months.
CMHA-NL’s At Work Program provides employment support for people living with a mental health issue or mental illness who are unemployed or under-employed and are seeking meaningful employment. The At Work Program also provides wage subsidies for employers. The Employment Support Coordinator works with employers and employees to ensure a smooth transition to work.
