About the Commission

The Mental Health Commission of Canada is a catalyst for improving the mental health system and changing the attitudes and behaviours of Canadians around mental health issues. Through its unique mandate from Health Canada, the MHCC brings together leaders and organizations from across the country to accelerate these changes.

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. The MHCC’s staff, Board and Advisory Committee members all share the same goal – creating a better system for all Canadians. The MHCC is funded by Health Canada and has a 10-year mandate (2007-2017).
