Headstrong

The Mood Disorders Association of Ontario and the Mental Health Commission of Canada are partnering on Canada's nation-wide youth anti-stigma initiative. Building on the expertise and momentum of our existing Stop the Stigma program, this spring we will be holding two HEADSTRONG: Youth Mental Health and Anti-Stigma Summits focused on bringing together students and staff from various schools across Toronto, along with persons with lived experience and community organizations to learn about mental health issues, mental illnesses and stigma, and to challenge stereotypes and misconceptions that fuel stigma. Find out how to register your school.
