MHCC HEADSTRONG: Youth Anti-Stigma Initiative

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.

#mhccHEADSTRONG 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.
