Creating lasting change with maximum impact.

HiDadFoundation raises awareness for the importance of men’s mental health for families.

Through research, advocacy and by leading conversations we encourage the public and policy makers to help end the stigma around men's mental health.

Over a third of Canadian men will not talk to others about how they feel to avoid feeling 'unmanly'.

Of the estimated 4,000 suicide deaths in Canada each year, close to 75 per cent are men.

Since the pandemic began, 1 in 3 men in Canada have had a mental health challenge. 

Mental health is important now more than ever.

We help break down barriers and stigmas, creating normalcy around mental health through research, advocacy, and by leading conversations.
