Guys talking about depression

Working together with the City of Vancouver, HeadsUpGuys was able to get the first ever proclamation of “Men’s Mental Health Awareness Day” on Tuesday, June 14th, 2016 of Men’s Health Week.

The proclamation helps to reduce the stigma that prevents many men from reaching out for treatment and support for mental health issues.


Vancouver joined Ottawa (Ontario) and Oshawa (Ontario) this year, having the date declared.

Thank you to Jean-François Claude and The Men’s D.E.N. for their help spearheading this initiative, approaching the city, and organizing the day.
