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: 

Goal
1

To organize awareness events 

Goal
2

To support mental health related organizations through fundraising initiatives

Goal
3

To educate and support students at McMaster and members of the Hamilton community. 

Goal
4

To engage McMaster students and provide opportunities to get involved with mental health issues in their community.

In order to accomplish our goals, we have three branches of our team which our executives oversee:

Indwell

A Charity that creates affordable housing communities that support individuals seeking health, wellness and belonging. 

Knowledge Translation Committee (KTC)

Scientific Literature is read, discussed and posted about on our blog.

General Subcommittee

Members help our executive team plan, promote and run events.
