Video of the Day: Now I’m Stronger

Hi friends,

Speak Your MindToday I want to you share with you an initiative of Youth Central (which hosts YVC of Calgary) called The Speak Your Mind Project. The Speak Your Mind Project was started with the passion of overcoming the stigma that surrounds the topic of mental health, specifically towards the youth populace in our city.
It is a social media based campaign aimed at normalizing the idea of mental illness by making it an accessible and recognizable subject. With the youth population becoming more vulnerable to experiences with mental illness, such as depression or bipolar disorder, we work towards providing a stronger level of comfort to all. The Speak Your Mind Project gives a voice to those who have felt marginalized to share their stories, which is what I am here to share with you today.

The Speak Your Mind Project has been committed to sharing stories of recovery and resilience through a recent campaign hosted by the Canadian Mental Health Association, #NowImStronger. We have created a video showcasing a diverse group of youth, sharing their stories and explaining what has made them stronger. I hope this video can become an inspiration for everyone to everyone to realize all the endless possibilities the world has to offer.
