Fae Johnstone: Mental Health Is about More than Self-care

Our society has taken steps to improve awareness and understanding on the stigmas of mental health. But conversations about mental health are often limited to certain conditions and are divorced from conversations about underlying factors like inequity and discrimination. Fae Johnstone believes that in order to effectively combat the stigmas of mental health, we need policy and awareness that addresses the unique realities and needs of all communities. Johnstone is the Executive Director of Wisdom2Action and she spoke at The Walrus Talks at Home: Youth Mental Health in 2021.
