CMHA-NL signs agreement with company, $250,000 pledged to program

Mental Health week couldn’t have ended any better for the Canadian Mental Health Association of Newfoundland and Labrador (CMHA-NL).

The week-long event, filled with activities and events that drew the public and private sector’s attention to a host of mental health issues and challenges, received a huge boost through a new partnership CMHA-NL signed with Pennecon late last week.
Pennecon has pledged $250,000 to contribute to CMHA’s goals of increasing awareness of mental health issues and improving the lives of those affected.

"We are delighted to launch a partnership with Pennecon, which will see our organizations work together to build mental health capacity in our community,” Dan Goodyear, executive director CMHA-NL said in a news release Thursday.
“Pennecon is a leader in mental health funding in Newfoundland and Labrador, and their $250,000 contribution will help CMHANL make a real and lasting impact in Newfoundland and Labrador,’’ he added.
“CMHA-NL is planning various activities over the summer including ‘Ride Don’t Hide’ in late June and the ‘Tickle Swim’ in mid- August,’’ he added.
