Welcome to Project Nightlight. This non-profit is focused on breaking the silence around mental health and normalizing our thoughts and feelings to create stronger foundations for families. 

Mental health affects us all. One in five Canadians will suffer from mental illness at some point in their lifetime. It reaches us all directly or through a friend, family member or colleague.

Project Nightlight gives real people a chance to break the silence and join a community of individuals focused on communicating their experiences, coping with mental health issues, and learning through a network of resources. Here you will find people sharing their mental health stories and connecting with a broad group of like-minded individuals. 

Our goal is to do better. To provide a safe space to share. To provide useful resources for people of all ages. To get past the stigma of mental illness, normalize speaking about our mental health and to help make things that are often invisible to friends and family visible through photos and stories. Join us.


Project Nightlight strives to empower people of all ages to openly discuss mental health and connect with a broad network of resources.
