COPE is a student-run mental health initiative at McMaster. It was founded in September 2008 by a group of McMaster students looking to make a difference.
As a mental health-oriented organization, we tackle many issues regarding the stigma and awareness surrounding mental illnesses, such as depression, anxiety, and eating disorders. Our goals are the following:
To organize awareness events
To support mental health related organizations through fundraising initiatives
To educate and support students at McMaster and members of the Hamilton community.
To engage McMaster students and provide opportunities to get involved with mental health issues in their community.
