Healthy Minds Cooperative is a not-for-profit (Non-Government Organization) member-driven, committed to improving the lives of people with mental illness. We focus on advocating for better access to mental health services; public education about mental illness; reducing stigma towards mental illness; peer support and advocacy for consumers and their families; more participation in the decision-making around mental health services; wellness workshops; and connecting to existing community services.
We all need access to mental health services that contribute to wellness and recovery allowing people to lead meaningful lives in a community free of stigma towards mental illness.
Message from our Chair:
Welcome to the Healthy Minds Cooperative website. We hope that this site serves as a valuable tool to learn more about HMC, the work we do and the services we provide to help humans make change.
HMC’s core focus continues to align with our values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. We believe and value honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others – helping humans make change for the better.
As Chair of the HMC Board of Directors, I have the pleasure of working with passionate Board and staff who are committed to helping to improve mental health in our communities.
We are committed to continue to work together to provide community resources and workshops to support you and your family/loved ones on making changes to improve your life and in your community.
Victoria Stapleton, Chair of the Healthy Minds Cooperative Board of Directors.
