Since 2015, DIALOG has supported local charities during the holiday season as our way to give back to those in our communities.
This year, we begin our holiday donation season amid some of the most difficult economic conditions we’ve seen – COVID-19 has negatively affected our health, thrown lives into full disarray and humbled many of us, our friends, family and community. As we considered where we might offer support, one important theme emerged: mental well-being for all.
For our 2021 Holiday Donation, and on behalf of our clients and colleagues, we’ve made donations of equal size to the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) as well as to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).
Both organizations are doing tremendous work to deliver mental health services to those experiencing mental health challenges and illness in our community and were chosen for their continued commitment to promoting awareness and advocacy about mental health issues.
We extend warmest wishes to you and yours this holiday season, and for a safe and healthy new year. Learn more about the organizations we're supporting this year below.
Canadian Mental Health Association
Located in more than 330 communities across Canada, the CMHA has a crucial mission, to advocate and provide resources for the 1 in 5 Canadians who have a mental illness.
The organization builds awareness and provides education and support for individuals and families living with mental health issues, substance use concern and loss by suicide, to support recovery and resilience, and enable all Canadians to thrive.
National Alliance on Mental Illness
NAMI is the largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.
As the nation’s leading voice on mental health, the organization operates with more than 600 local affiliates who work with local communities to raise awareness and provide support, education and advocacy to those living with mental illness and their loved ones.
