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 or find us on Facebook at

Our next peer support meeting in Hamilton will be on Wednesday, March 27th from 6-8pm at McMaster University. Email for details.
