The CMWAC (formerly the Richmond Chinese Mental Health Support Group and the Chinese Mental Wellness Association of Canada) is a registered non-profit charitable organization that was established in 1995 as a grassroots organization. It serves as a platform that connects those with mental illness to their family members and the people with mental health concerns by providing culturally appropriate counseling services, education, training referrals and help them align to the community.
Our objective is to reduce social stigma associated with mental illness within the community for early detection and early intervention with the help of volunteers and partnership with other organizations. We believe that our mission to prevent mental and emotional disorders, to provide proper treatments, care, and support will bring hopes to those with mental health concerns and betterment of the community.
