Face of Today shifts perceptions surrounding mental health through collective awareness, programs and community experiences.
We empower vulnerable youth through mentorship, integrative programming and community engagement to support mental wellbeing in Metro Vancouver.
We acknowledge that the land on which we gather is unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
At Face of Today we encourage and welcome youth and community of all generations, backgrounds, faiths, cultures, ethnicities, gender identities, abilities, and lifestyles to participate in deeper conversations and practices surrounding mental health. At our resource centre we aspire to foster accessibility and inspiration to shift perceptions.

FACE OF TODAY STANDS FOR SOCIAL CHANGE
TO END THE STIGMAS ATTACHED TO MENTAL HEALTH,
THROUGH AWARENESS, SUPPORT AND EXPERIENCES.
Mental health affects us all, and today stigmas still exist attached to it's issues, preventing correct diagnosis and treatment. Face of Today stands to tackle, support and end those stigmas.
We see mental health and it's related illnesses as an ever evolving spectrum of conditions, knowledge and treatment. Each day we learn more about the complexities of the brain and it's health.
Today in North America 70% of young people who experience mental health problems have not had appropriate interventions at an early age and 63% of youth point to stigma as the most likely reason not to seek help.
We have to shift the perception of mental health.
