Who We Are

Meeting people where they are,
REGARDLESS OF THE SUBSTANCE

Mission

To advance education and awareness of pragmatic approaches to less harmful substance use, mental health, and other harms impacting people and communities in Canada.

Vision

Our vision is twofold:

 

(1) When cessation approaches fail, or are not chosen, people who use substances, and those who can support them, have knowledge of less harmful options. 

(2) People affected by mental health and other harms have supporters around them who have awareness of their situations and can offer increased, meaningful support.
