Our Goal

Our goal is to reduce stigma towards people suffering with mental health and addictions issues in the Saskatoon region.


We will achieve this goal through the Break the Barrier campaign, which is designed to educate people about stigma and how it hinders the recovery process, and to encourage understanding.

Education will take place at public awareness events and activities hosted by the Break the Barrier partners.


We invited those in recovery to share their stories so that others who may be suffering are encouraged to reach out for help.


If your organization works with individuals suffering from mental health and addictions issues, you are welcome to join us in helping to

Break the Barrier: End stigma. Change lives.
