CMHA celebrates International Day of Persons with Disabilities

As we commemorate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) on December 3rd, CMHA Kenora recognizes that inclusivity extends beyond physical accessibility. It includes the mental and emotional health of every individual. 

IDPD’s goal is to promote an understanding of disability issues and mobilize support for the dignity, rights, and well-being of persons with disabilities. Persons with disabilities may face unique mental health and addiction challenges as well as challenges in accessing other social determinants of health. For example, people with disabilities account for 30 per cent of Canadians living in deep poverty, earning below 75 per cent of Canada's official poverty line.

In recognition of those challenges, CMHA works to increase access to the social determinants of health and to support inclusion and participation for individuals with disabilities in the community. Supports include [insert information about local programming].
