Get the facts about stigma from MHCC Youth Council

The Mental Health Commission of Canada created #mhccYouthCouncil 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.
