MHCC HEADSTRONG: Youth Anti-Stigma Initiative

MHCC HEADSTRONG is the youth anti-stigma campaign of the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC). The stigma that surrounds mental health problems and mental illnesses is keeping many people from seeking help when they need it most. Often the first symptoms are experienced during teenage years. This initiative brings together youth from a variety of schools to a regional summit where they hear stories from people with lived experience of mental health problems or mental illnesses. These students are going back to their schools and spreading messages of hope and recovery, reducing stigma and affecting real change.

The Mental Health Commission of Canada created a Youth Council of young people aged 18 to 30 with lived experience of mental health problems or illnesses to advise on infant, child and youth mental health issues. Since 2008 they have been providing the youth voice and are a resource for youth-related work of the MHCC. In 2012, the Youth Council created a video about their encounters with mental health stigma to raise awareness and spark change.
