Healthy Minds Canada (HMC) is a national charity that raises funds to support mental health research and education, and to raise awareness into and about mental illness and addictions. Since 1980, HMC has funded 400 research projects at 42 universities and teaching hospitals across Canada. HMC has reached thousands of people through knowledge transfer initiatives such as workshops, symposia, print and online resources, and hundreds of thousands more through social media.

HMC’s three-volume handbook series When Something’s Wrong, is designed to assist teachers, families, and employers in identifying and managing mental health and addictions issues in their respective environments. Other initiatives include the development of apps and collaboration with wearable technology companies to complement the subject matter in the books, and to instill empathy and mindfulness about all areas of mental wellness.
