The Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) is mobilizing youth across the country to confront mental health stigma head-on. A growing number of young champions of change are set to make a significant impact in the fight against a serious problem that threatens the wellness of so many young Canadians.
MHCC HEADSTRONG is giving Canadian youth the encouragement, knowledge, and tools they need to lead this fight. This national youth anti-stigma campaign was created by Opening Minds, the MHCC’s anti-stigma initiative. It was launched at a national summit in Ottawa in November 2014, where it brought together youth from across the country who are committed to — and excited about — creating positive change.
