I was very im­pressed with the thor­ough ac­count of Canada’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Great War and the so­ci­etal changes that war trig­gered.

One of the changes was the found­ing of the Cana­dian Men­tal Health As­so­ci­a­tion in Toronto in 1918 to, amongst other things, pro­vide “ad­e­quate care of re­turned sol­diers suf­fer­ing from men­tal dis­abil­i­ties.”

The CMHA con­tin­ues to sup­port Canada’s men­tal health needs and also cel­e­brates its cen­te­nary this year.
