The Sad Collective



The Sad Collective is a community who firmly believes in the power of vulnerability. We believe in the freedom of crying, the strength in admitting we’re not always fine and the courage to seek support when it’s needed. Instead of being ashamed of our feelings, we wear them proudly on our sleeve, because let’s face it, we can’t do this alone.

Too often, mental illness is erased, hidden, made invisible from daily life, but the truth is that 20% of Canadians will experience some form of mental illness in their lifetime, and 10-20% of Canadian youth are affected by a mental disorder.

Not only does The Sad Collective strive to be a safe space for emotional expression — we hope to become a catalyst for conversation, with the goal of bringing mental health to the forefront of social consciousness.
