MOOD DISORDERS SOCIETY OF CANADA, set on promoting Suicide and Depression Awareness. Lets make a difference as a collective community!
We are very pleased to announce the MOOD DISORDERS OF CANADA as our recipients for donations for the 2018 Lets Fight Suicide an Depression concert tour. August 16th 2018 at the Broken City venue in Calgary, AB. August 18th at the Leannes bar and Grill in Millet, AB and August 19th at the Rec Room in Edmonton AB.
The Mood Disorders Society of Canada has grown out of the vision and drive of a number of mental health consumer leaders from across Canada who in 1995 saw the need for a broad-based structure to bring consumers of mental health services together and who believe that consumers have a key role to play with regard to education and advocacy at the national level.
It was formally launched and incorporated in 2001 with the overall objective of providing people with mood disorders with a strong, cohesive voice at the national level to improve access to treatment, inform research, and shape program development and government policies with the goal of improving the quality of life for people affected by mood disorders.
The MDSC’s overall objective is to provide people with mood disorders with a strong, cohesive voice at the national level by:
Raising awareness that mood disorders are treatable medical issues and working towards eliminating barriers to full community participation in reducing discrimination and stigma, involving members of the public, government and treatment/service providers.
Building a national clearinghouse of information and resources related to mood disorders.
Advocating for the creation of adequate and accessible stigma-free programs for Canadians living with or suffering from mental illness.
Ensuring that the voices of consumers and family members are accurately understood and communicated on issues of national importance by building on exisiting networks and alliances.
Collaboration is an MDSC operational principle. The Society fulfills its mandate through an active partnership approach that engages like-minded organizations in the public, private and voluntary sectors. The MDSC is engaged on an ongoing basis in a wide range of projects and initiatives designed to support the inclusion of persons with disabling mental illnesses in Canadian society and has taken a lead proactive role in public policy and program development in many capacities on the national stage.They can provide a receipt as a non-profit registered society for any donation received for the event.

Fusing two unmistakable genres with an effortless blend, comes the sounds of Brandon Hart. From his deep, raspy, blues voice to his high-energy, live performances, he is definitely a unique and unforgettable performer. Judging by the visuals released titled “Nightmares”, it’s apparent that he’s tapped into some personal subject matter, shedding light on mental illness and past relationships.

Brandon will be touring throughout Canada later this year, so make sure to stay connected as this is one artist you don’t want to miss in your home town.

— Kiyo —
Hey my name is Kiyo I’m an up and coming artist from Calgary, I started getting into music around the age of 15, it was the only way that I knew how to really express myself and express how I was feeling. My name Kiyo is actually one of my middle names, Kiyoshi cut in half, this name holds a lot of meaning to me as it was my grandfathers name before me, and from the Japanese word it translates to purity, so every time I pick up a mic or a pen it’s a tribute to him.
