Hack the North Project

The University of Waterloo has sparked a huge change in talking about mental health and related issues. However, the stigma and the self-destructive mindset of people make it hard to reach out. Especially with the recent news about putting students with mental illnesses such as depression on a mandatory leave of absence. This makes the already difficult act of seeking help even more tense. A lot of people feel embarrassed or fear being seen differently if they talk about these issues with friends and family however with anonymous people on the internet, there is no fear of ruining relationships. In those deceiving mindsets, it's easy to see positive support from peers and family as an obligation and artificial, however by connecting with people in similar situations, you know they truly understand the emotions you are going through. We wanted to create a platform that helps those people make the first step in finding aid and pushing towards breaking the stigma shrouding mental health.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
