Nearly one in five Canadians will experience a mental health or substance use problem each year. Young people age 15 to 24 years are more likely to experience a mental health and/or substance use challenge than any other age group.
Yet, open conversations about mental health and stories of recovery can work to remove the stigma, facilitate engagement with services, and improve the outcomes of individuals seeking help.
Hear from Professor Santa J. Ono and UBC alumni and friends as they discuss: Are there specific groups that have unique mental health needs? How are their needs being met? What external factors are impacting the mental health needs in the city? How can society provide ongoing support so that the mental health issues experienced in the community don’t become crises?
