Step Above Stigma is a Canadian recognized charity, a not-for-profit organization formed at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. Our goal is to improve the accessibility of mental health care across Canada. Mental illness affects 20% of Canadians (1 in 5 people), and if depression is recognized, getting help can make a difference for 80% of the individuals who are affected, allowing them to return to their regular self. Through all of our fundraisers 100% of the profits will go to mental health organizations across Canada. Through our fundraisers, sock sales, and other events and initiatives, we work towards educating the public on the importance of mental wellness while donating money to mental health charities!
