BREAKING THE STIGMA
MINDSTRONG YOUNG MINDS
Welcome to the Mindstrong Young Minds page! We are an organization linked to the Jewish General Hospital devoted to raising awareness around mental illness in adolescents.
According to the World Health Organization, 1 in 6 teenagers suffer from mental illness, and 50% of mental illness cases begin at the early age of 14 years old.
These shocking statistics have encouraged a group of teenagers to come together to break the stigma associated with mental illness. We are working together to show our generation that it is simply okay to not be okay.
