The Canadian Coalition for Seniors' Mental Health (CCSMH) is hard at work ensuring that seniors' mental health is recognized as a key Canadian health and wellness issue. Working with partners across the country, the CCSMH is busy facilitating initiatives to enhance and promote seniors' mental health.
Canadian Coalition for Seniors’ Mental Health (CCSMH) was established during a National Symposium on "Gaps in Mental Health Services for Seniors in Long-term Care" in April 2002 hosted by the Canadian Academy of Geriatric Psychiatry. The participants, who represented more than 65 organizations from across Canada, included national and provincial associations and government policymakers, consumers, service providers, educators, researchers and representatives from private industry.
