What we’ve learned so far is that Lambton County has many existing strengths – we are a flourishing, resilient community with a generally high level of mental health literacy and low level of stigma toward mental illness. But our most vulnerable people experience the greatest stigma and worse baseline mental health which was often made worse during the pandemic. Minds Connected is one path forward.
