We are Step Above Stigma:
Where Empowerment is the Antidote to Stigma
Who We Are
Canada is experiencing a mental health crisis amongst youth as many struggle to access or seek mental health support due to stigma.
We are Step Above Stigma (SAS)—a registered Canadian charity dedicated to empowering young adults to break the stigmas that say they are unworthy. SAS is a home that empowers young adults to critically question social norms and step above the stigmas that prevent them from having good mental health. At SAS, empowerment is the antidote to stigma.
Our mission is to instil community, leadership, and purpose in 250,000 young adults by 2027 so they can live mentally healthier lives.
