The statistics are not changing. One in every five Canadian is affected by mental illness and the stigma is as strong as ever. Me Too Conversations brings some of the brightest minds and speakers to the table to open the conversation and smash the stigma. This free six-part speaker series launched in October 2015 and concluded in February 2017. Each unique event highlighted some of the misconceptions around mental illness. The words “Me Too” tells us that we are not alone. It means there are others who empathize, sympathize, support and care for us.

A special thank you to mental health advocate and philanthropist Andy Szocs who generously funded the Me Too platform to help empower those impacted by mental illness.
