Me Too Conversations

Me Too Conversations

Project Description

When one if every five Canadians is affected by a mental illness, it’s important we all speak and hear the words “Me Too.”

They’re just two simple little words, but they carry so much meaning: empathy, sympathy, understanding and support. They tell us we are not alone. And they are powerful weapons against the prejudice and stereotypes that surround mental health and hold people back from the treatment, respect and dignity we all deserve.

Which made them the perfect title for a 6-part speaker series from the VGH/UBC Hospital Foundation that brought people with mental illness to the stage to share stories of struggle and success. We did the naming, branding, copywriting and communications plan. They produced the event and curated the exceptional lineup of storytellers.
