Housing, Health and Mental Health

April 30, 2003

This housing backgrounder was developed by the Canadian Mental Health Association’s (CMHA) Citizens for Mental Health project: a two year project which came to a close in May 2004. The project goal was to enhance the capacity of the voluntary sector to engage in federal level policy initiatives related to mental health. Through a series of consultations with a range of voluntary sector organizations, housing was identified as a key determinant related to the mental health of every community.

This backgrounder provides a tool in support of efforts to improve the mental health of all, including those with mental illness, by ensuring access to safe, affordable and appropriate housing as individual circumstances necessitate.
