Changing Directions, Changing Lives and Taking the Next Step Forward

In March 2013, the Mental Health Commission of Canada’s Youth Council (YC) came up with the idea to rewrite or “translate,” from a youth perspective, Changing Directions, Changing Lives: The Mental Health Strategy for Canada. The main aim of their project was to develop a supplemental document that highlights the experiences and vision of young people working toward system change, ultimately making the original Strategy a more accessible document to all.
