About Us

Who are we?

Black Mental Health Connections Montreal emerged following a Black History Month event hosted at McGill University in 2016, where the need for a space to discuss and mobilize around the mental health needs of Montreal’s Black Community was named.

BMHC MTL wants to overcome the stigma of mental health, make mental health services more appropriate and more accessible, promote mental health literacy, and support personal resilience and a more healthy existence for all members of the Black community.

What values guide us?

  • Emphasis on bringing our community together;
  • Appreciation of our community’s strength and resilience;
  • Recognition of the great diversity within our community and commitment to ensuring all members feel they are valued; and
  • Belief that community members’ stories reduce the stigma surrounding mental health.

For more information on what we do, please consult our annual report here.
