IMD Health Global and the Canadian Mental Health Association announce partnership to improve the quality of patient education

March 22, 2002 – Toronto, Ontario

IMD Health Global (IMD) is pleased to announce an important new partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA). IMD is a CloudMD Software & Services company focused on digital health education, to provide resources to healthcare providers, patients and their families on the IMD platform.

“Having good information about mental health and mental illnesses can make all the difference in a person’s life.” said Margaret Eaton, National CEO, CMHA. “That’s why CMHA is thrilled to share our resources with many more people who are searching for information about their mental health.”

IMD Health is one of the largest digital health educational platforms in Canada.  IMD offers innovative technology that facilitates meaningful dialogue between healthcare professionals and patients inside the examination room, hospital bedsides, pharmacy consultations and during virtual consultations. IMD’s award-winning platform enables healthcare professionals to instantly access over 110,000 media-rich educational graphics, videos and resources during consults as well as by patients at home.

“We are very excited to collaborate with the Canadian Mental Health Association to provide our clinicians, patients and their families with trusted information to provide support to all people in Canada in their pursuit of mental health” said Alice Haidau, Medical Content Manager, IMD, citing the need for inclusive, evidence-based health information, particularly given the shift toward digital tools incited by the pandemic, and internet use which often leads to misinformation.

Through a resource like IMD, full of user-friendly and visually appealing information, healthcare providers, their patients and families will gain a better understanding and management of mental health in Canada.
