A very very cool moment for us as a social enterprise. Our first four-figure donation. And it's all thanks to you.

Through incredible sponsorship and community contributions we were able to raise $1597.86 for the winning team of Strike Out The Stigma which just so happens to be the gracious folx over at The Canadian Mental Health Association
They brought their a-game, and continue to day in and day out supporting the community with innovation, support programs, housing and an always warm and welcoming greeting.
We're excited about future collaborations - so stay tuned!!
World Mental Health Day is an international day for global mental health education and advocacy against social stigma. The overall objective is raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilizing efforts in support of mental health.
When Michael and I first started You Are Collective .. we wanted to make a difference. We wanted to talk about mental health and illness so people would start to understand they're not alone, we all go through challenges, and it's COMPLETELY OK to talk about.
This course is just one step towards being able to #endthestigma and help educate our society about what it means to have mental health, illness, suicidal thoughts and actions .. and how to support someone going through it (even yourself!)
We highly, highly recommend taking this course whether you've been close to suicide or someone with suicidal thoughts or not .. it never hurts to be educated! Check out @cmhanational website to find a course near you!
