More about us: Mad Students Society (MSS), created in 2005, is a community of students who are attending or planning to attend post-secondary or adult education institutions and have personal past/present experiences with psychiatric/mental health systems. We meet monthly (in Toronto and Hamilton) and communicate through an email listserv to support each other, discover tools for self-advocacy, and connect with our history and broader social movements. Visit our website at www.madstudentsociety.com. We have been hosting peer support meetings in Hamilton since September 2012. There are over 90 local members and 300 across Canada.
