Mental Health Professionals Struggle Quietly in The Pandemic

Everyone has a mental health story.
Talking about it shouldn't be taboo.

Art With Impact Canada (AWIC) is a registered charity whose mission is to promote mental wellness by creating space for young people to learn and connect through art and media. We use the arts and creativity to promote discussion about mental health, and reduce stigma around mental illness. Shame, isolation and fear are some of the biggest barriers keeping people from seeking support for mental health, but art and media have a unique ability to help us explore issues that are difficult to define and rarely given space. AWIC is committed to a future where artists are revered as cultural icons of courage and change, enabling young people to communicate freely and fearlessly about their mental health.

The OLIVE Film Collection is the world’s most diverse library of short films about mental health.
