Our New Brunswick Secretariat team is made up of youth and their supporters, First Nations, community, researchers, decision makers, and service providers. New Brunswick was chosen as a site for this research project because it is representative of Canada. It is bilingual, diverse, urban, and rural.
As the only province-wide demonstration site, we work with Partnering Communities (PCs) around the province to provide safe spaces and communities for youth. Our Partnering Communities are currently located:
Elsipogtog Health & Wellness Center
PEER Saint John
Centre de Bénévolat de la Péninsule Acadienne

Started in 2014 by the Student Union at the University of New Brunswick, and now run by Lee Thomas, #MyDefinition is an online and print poster campaign (well… a combination of a lot of campaigns!) which aims to smash stigma and spread the message: your mental health is a part of you, but it does not define you.
ACCESS OM NB invites you to meet six of our brave faces who are working in their communities as mental health advocates and leaders.
New Brunswick, May 4, 2017 – ACCESS Open Minds New Brunswick (ACCESS OM NB) is pleased to announce partnerships with three provincial community organizations that will enable them to open their doors to young people struggling with mental health challenges and improve access to integrated mental health care.

New Brunswick’s challenges
In the Children and Youth Rights and Well-being Snapshot, the New Brunswick Health Council and the Child and Youth Advocate reported that:
New Brunswick’s solution
We will work to make sure that all New Brunswick youth have timely access to community-based mental health care. We will listen and work with youth and their supporters. We will look for people and organizations that offer support to the community already. We will work with them to find out what other support is needed. Our suggestions will be tailored to each community, recognizing that each is different and unique.
ACCESS Open Minds New Brunswick Research and Evaluation Plan
During the project, we will collect and analyze information to see how our work makes a difference in the lives of youth in NB.
