Changing Minds

Changing Minds is an innovative, multi-use mental illness education program. It was created in order to address a community need for mental health education, stigma reduction and to promote a better understanding of mental health and mental illness. This powerful and engaging program will change your mind regarding people with mental illness, delivered by a certified Canadian Mental Health Association of New Brunswick Facilitator.

Changing Minds


Who is this program for?

This program is designed for organizations and people that encounter people experiencing mental illness on a daily basis in their occupation. The program helps you to relate to your clients on a more personal level and gives you insight into their way of thinking.

Why the program works

Mental Illness is more challenging to understand than other kinds of illness. It’s easier to understand mental illness when we get to know the individual with the illness and the affect it has on their lives.
