Mental Health and Addiction Services

We’ve Reached Our Goal! Thank You to Donors of the Mental Health and Addictions Major Gifts Campaign!

On September 18th, 2013, Mental Health and Addiction Services changed for the better in the Cape Breton District Health Authority (CBDHA). The Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation launched a $1.35 million major gift campaign, chaired by volunteer George Unsworth.

Thanks to the generosity of the Cape Breton Mental Health Foundation, who made a leadership gift  of $675,000, all donations will be matched, dollar for dollar, to create a significant impact on mental health and addictions care in our community.

This broad based major gift  campaign will support four funding priorities for Mental Health and Addiction Services at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, and in our community, including:

Funding PriorityProjects/Care Area$
