MyHAT's mission is to welcome people living with mental illness and those who care about them, creating a community of acknowledgement, acceptance and understanding.
Anti Stigma Campaign - If you have signed our interest list you will periodically receive information about mental illness that has appeared in the media. It is educational and timely as well as being a barometer of how mental health is being presented to the public. We ask, if you can, to respond to the creators of the stories/broadcasts, either in a positive or negative way as appropriate, to support or correct the information that is being put out by the media.
Legislative Advocacy - If you have signed our interest list you will periodically receive information about legislation that affects the well being of persons with a mental illness. We ask you to contact your elected officials and tell them about your support or disapproval of this legislation. The team can be contacted at email@example.com.
