HELPING REMOVE THE STIGMA SURROUNDING MENTAL ILLNESS


On February 10th, 2013, we experienced an extremely deep and personal loss of our son, friend, brother and teammate Steven Hutchison. Steven took his own life. Out of this sad tragedy we have started on a journey to find a way to get our youth talking. There is an overall need to remove the stigma that is attached to Mental Illness as a whole, and to provide ways for youth to talk about and share their feelings or concerns in a manner that meets the needs of children and teens today.

How You Can Help Us

RAISE AWARENESS

Our goal in honouring Steven’s memory is that we want to raise awareness about Mental Health issues so that people don’t feel stigmatized. Our hope is that someday people will be as comfortable talking about their Mental Illness symptoms as they are in talking about their broken leg or the flu that they have.
