CMHA Ottawa reached a milestone of 60 years of service in Ottawa’s mental health community this year, with the event marked recently with a celebration at the CMHA National conference. The organization began in 1953 when a small group of Ottawa citizens came together to determine the mental health needs of the Ottawa region. Originally led by a team of volunteers, CMHA Ottawa is now a leader in mental health services and resources for the Ottawa area. “60 years is a pretty remarkable milestone for any organization,” said Tim Stimboli, Executive Director of CMHA Ottawa.”Our past achievements give us a great base to go forward.”
