In October 2020 CCHA in partnership with MacEwan Nurs 424 students conducted a Mental Health survey for Canadians living with CHD. The survey results indicated that an astonishing 88% of adults living with CHD said they had experienced mental health challenges at some point.

As a result, CCHA has compiled a list of mental health resources across Canada, they can be accessed at https://www.cchaforlife.org/mental-health-resources
