Ending stigma will help people feel accepted, seek the help they need and recover.

Break The Barrier: Men and Mental Health

The stigma surrounding mental illness is lessening, but men still face unique barriers to seeking the help they require. Our challenge should be to 'man up' and confront the illness head on. Project Voice celebrates Mental Health Awareness Week with our Break The Barrier: Men and Mental Health video!

   Break the Barrier is a movement that began more than 5 years ago in Saskatoon. We are a group of community partners and volunteers and our objective is to eliminate the stigma and discrimination that persons living with mental illness and substance use disorders experience every day. Our focus on recovery, and the struggle, hopes and triumph that recovery entails is shared through our Project Voice Campaign .
