About Us



MINA was established in December 2013, after the death of Mina to suicide on April 24th, 2012. Founder, Mariam with her family and friends established MINA to raise awareness for mental health, to educate communities about the signs of mental illness and to collaborate with all sectors with the mission to build mentally healthy  communities across Ontario.

MINA is incorporated as a Not-For-Profit Corporation under Corporations Canada.


In 2018, MINA got busy! We have established a new board of directors, launched our Youth Ambassadors Program and are working towards launching our *NEW* mental health promotion and suicide prevention program.

  1. Develop and Implement a 5 Year Strategic Plan
  2. Complete our Application to CRA for our Charitable Registration Status
  3. Establish a Family Advisor Committee to support the planning and launch of our *NEW* program
