One in five young people in Canada live with a mental disorder (source: Kids Help Phone), but five in five are affected by mental health. Despite this, almost half of the Canadian population associate mental illness with excuses for bad behaviour or performance (source: CAMH). As a result, yWE TALK hopes to de-stigmatize the topic of mental health and bring it to the forefront of youth conversations.
Our Vision is to be an initiator and conversation starter about mental health.
Our Mission is to educate and encourage youth to take care of their mental health by providing safe resources, lead interactive activities, and host opportunities for conversation.
