Feedback, Concern & Complaint
Providing quality service that is accessible to individuals who use our services is important to us. Your comments, complaints and compliments will help us monitor and improve our services and your service experiences. Your feedback will help us identify where changes should be considered, ways in which we can improve how we deliver services to individuals and other people with disabilities, and what we do well.
CMHA would like to assist individuals in becoming aware of the importance of possessing good conflict resolution skills. This process helps identify potential situations and how they can be approached, defused and ultimately resolved. Dealing with feedback or concerns is not easy but it can be productive if we all work together.

Compliments and Gifts: When something good happens, speak to your worker in person or send us something in writing. Sometimes people want to give gifts to workers that have helped them. We appreciate your generosity, but unfortunately workers cannot accept gifts. The greatest gift you can give is to express your appreciation and feedback in writing or online.
