Recovery Day Ottawa


Join with us for the official Recovery Day Ottawa celebration in the National Capital at Ottawa City Hall.

During the month of September, Canadians are gathering to build awareness, challenge societal stigma, and celebrate the role that recovery plays in improving the lives of individuals, families, and communities.

We envision a world in which recovery from addiction is a common, celebrated reality - a world where all individuals will have access to the support they need when seeking help.

We believe by speaking out as people living in recovery, or as family, friends and supporters of those affected by addiction, we save lives.

Through our personal stories and shared experience, we hope to inspire others to join us. Together, we demonstrate the power and proof of recovery from addiction.

Canadian Mental Health Association

The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), founded in 1918, is one of the oldest voluntary organizations in Canada. Each year, we provide direct service to more than 100,000 Canadians through the combined efforts of more than 10,000 volunteers and staff across Canada in over 120 communities.

L’Association canadienne pour la santé mentale (ACSM) a été fondée en 1918. Il s’agit d’une des plus anciennes organisations bénévoles du Canada. Chaque année, elle fournit des services directs à plus de 100 000 Canadiens grâce aux efforts combinés de plus de 10 000 bénévoles et employés travaillant dans plus de 135 collectivités d’un océan à l’autre.

As a nation-wide, voluntary organization, the Canadian Mental Health Association promotes the mental health of all and supports the resilience and recovery of people experiencing mental illness. The CMHA accomplishes this mission through advocacy, education, research and service.

L’Association canadienne pour la santé mentale est un organisme bénévole oeuvrant à l’échelle nationale dans le but de promouvoir la santé mentale de tous et de favoriser la résilience et le rétablissement des personnes ayant une maladie mentale.
