CMHA Waterloo Wellington joins organizations across the country this week in celebrating National Volunteer Week.
The theme this year, Volunteering is Empathy in Action, affirms the strong connection between volunteerism and empathy. This profoundly human connection is at the heart of healthier individuals and stronger communities. Empathy is a quality that can help people relate to others and build awareness around different experiences. It connects people in ideas and actions and helps create bonds forged in common goals and aspirations. From coast to coast to coast in formal and informal settings, volunteers create caring, collaborative, and compassionate communities.
Volunteers play a crucial role at CMHA WW. Without the dedication of volunteers, many programs offered by our branch would not be possible. And as an added benefit, research shows that doing things for others strengthens our own mental health.

We are also in need of event volunteers for our upcoming Shopper’s Run for Women on May 15th, click here to learn more.
From all of us at CMHA Waterloo Wellington, thank you to the amazing volunteers we work with every day. We truly appreciate your dedication in helping us work towards good mental health for all.
