Strength in Unity is a community-based research project to build capacity among youth and men from Asian Communities in Canada, and mobilize them to become Community Mental Health Ambassadors. They will raise awareness about mental illness, available supports and services and encourage communities to take up anti-stigma initiatives. The study was funded by Movember Foundation and SFU Faculty of Health Sciences.
Today, the results of the study are being presented at the Men’s Mental Health Summit in downtown Vancouver. Sukhdeep Jassar, former chair of SAMHAA’s board of directors, was also a past member of the Vancouver site research team.
