Territorial Acknowledgement

Mood Disorders Society of Canada (MDSC) is a national, non-profit health charity committed to ensuring that the voices of persons impacted by mental illness are heard on issues relating to mental health and mental illness. Doing so requires ongoing understanding and action related to persistent health inequities and injustices.

MDSC is headquartered on the traditional territory of the Anishnabek, Huron-Wendat and Haudenosaunee, covered by the Williams and Upper Canada Treaties. We are grateful to have the opportunity to live and work in the community and on this important traditional territory. We acknowledge our shared obligation to respect, honour, and sustain these lands and the natural resources contained within. MDSC staff, volunteers, and partners live and work from many territories across Turtle Island.

Through ongoing learning and education we can help challenge and dismantle systemic barriers that persist in our society and which are intimately linked to the central mission of our organization in mental health and wellbeing. We commit ourselves to the path of justice, healing, and reconciliation to create a brighter future and mental health landscape for all Indigenous individuals and communities.
