About the event
Our purpose is to empower people to seek and receive the help they need by addressing barriers to mental health support. Obstacles such as language, culture, stigma, cost, and doubt. We aim to identify the barriers that prevent people from seeking mental health services, and raise awareness for programs that empower people to seek those services. Creating an inclusive and inviting discourse surrounding mental health and enabling individuals & families to be more receptive to support. Building communities that encourage general mental well-being which starts with breaking down barriers and opening forums for discussion about sensitive personal issues. Offering people the tools that allow them to easily find & connect with providers (counsellors, therapists, psychologists, mentors, and life coaches).
Deconstructing myths & misconceptions concerning seeking mental health support, and forming relationships with community representatives to better understand problems specific to those groups.
