The Community Mental Health Initiative is a non-profit charitable organization that is community-based and made up representatives of professional agencies, community groups and consumers whose goal is to work together to address mental health needs in the Corner Brook, Bay of Islands and Deer Lake areas. Founded in 1994 and incorporated in 1996, this organization is the sounding board for mental health issues that emerge, the support for initiatives to be undertaken, and the voice for consumers.
CMHI is run by a board of directors and supported through the in kind contributions of four partnering agencies:
- Western Health
- Family Justice Services (Courts)
- Newfoundland and Labrador English School Board
- Department of Advanced Education and Skills
