Young people are falling through the cracks.

Equitable access shouldn’t be hard to find.

Young people deserve better. That’s why we’ve unveiled a $2 million innovation challenge to help focus Canada’s leading AI and e-Health startups on creating human-centric improvements for youth mental health.

Together, we will create a personalised, gamified, interactive ecosystem of programs, services and resources that young people can customize throughout their life stages — all the way into adulthood.

Join the challenge

We have a bold vision. One that has never been realized in the mental health sector — here or anywhere in the world. It’s not only game changing — it’s life saving.

Join us for the challenge! Please share your information here, and a member of our team will follow up with you shortly.
