I worked at Canadian Mental Health Association full-time (Less than a year)
For 40 years in Thunder Bay, CMHA has committed to improving the mental health of its clients. At one time, the mental health & well-being of employees was also a high priority and CMHA still has a large number of longtime staff. Changes at the administrative level, as well as changes to Provincial health funding, have changed how CMHA treats its workers.
I started at CMHA as a well-educated professional with personal lived experience of mental health issues. I made the decision to leave my job based on continuing MH issues, which my manager either was unable or unwilling to understand, or work with me to resolve. I also required additional training, but was told "there's no money available". And that statement struck me as very odd given that certain administrative staffs had very recently received a 5% pay raise, putting them on Ontario's "Sunshine List". While my issues with CMHA are my own, they do coincide with at least one of the reasons CMHA Thunder Bay workers voted to give their bargaining unit a strike mandate: CMHA Thunder Bay is failing to live its own Mission Statement.
Advice to Management
Re-read your Vision and Mission statements and treat your employees accordingly. Taking away benefits and sick days in a high stress work environment is a sign of devaluing the workers who, over the past 40 years, made CMHA-TB one of the most highly respected mental health agencies in the city. Unhappy, burnt out workers will impact the quality of CMHA services & supports to clients. And clients are your key to continue funding--not to mention Accreditation!
