Funding for local mental health care programs provided by the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) got a boost recently when Tolko’s vice-president of people and services, Tanya Wick, presented a generous donation of $6,000 on behalf of Tolko to Julia Payson, CMHA’s executive director.
“CMHA Vernon is extremely grateful for the generous support from Tolko,” says Payson. “Through partnerships with community-minded leaders like Tolko, we will continue to improve and save the lives of our local youth and families.”
CMHA provides several services that help children and adults cope with day-to-day challenges. From programs that strengthen parent-child relationships to increasing the awareness and prevention of suicide, CMHA is available over the phone, on the web, and in-person.
“We are grateful for all the work CMHA does and we are pleased to help support their mission,” says Wick. “Hopefully this donation will provide CMHA the funding it needs to continue bettering people’s lives.”
