About MHY 

Who We Are

A mental health nonprofit organization dedicated primarily to the support and mental wellbeing of California youth. 

Our Mission 

Our organization's mission is to support, understand, and advocate for youth in our diverse society, particularly those struggling with mental health challenges. Our goal is to spread awareness and educate others on the importance of mental health, as well as encourage them to take part in mental health advocacy.

Our Vision 

Understanding. A society where we are able to and truly want to understand the struggles and challenges faced by one another. 

Compassion. A society filled with nothing but compassion and genuine care and kindness for one another. 

Support. A society willing to support all those who need it. 

Acceptance. A society without stigma, prejudice, and bias, where those who suffer from a mental illness are uplifted, not vilified.

MHY Canada

At the Canada branch of Mental Health in Youth, located in Vancouver, we are committed to nurturing the mental well-being of young individuals. 

Our organization's mission centers around providing unwavering support, fostering understanding, and advocating for the mental health needs of the vibrant youth community in British Columbia. We strive to create a compassionate and inclusive environment where Vancouver's youth, particularly those grappling with mental health adversities, find solace, empowerment, and the resources they need to thrive.

As the Canada branch of Mental Health in Youth, we are dedicated to actualizing this vision by working hand in hand with our community, fostering partnerships, and facilitating initiatives that make a lasting difference in the lives of our youth. Together, we strive for a brighter, more empathetic future where mental health for everyone is a priority.
