What We Do...

Mental Health Awareness

Let The Elephants Dance was created to help raise awareness of mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety and so much more. Here we are a stigma-free space for artists to showcase their work, their stories, their heartbreak and most importantly: the battles they have won, to give hope to those still suffering. We hope to provide encouragement, love, safety and support for all. We have now branched out to continue with our conversations around mental health by providing workshops, classes, and starting a podcast with special guests from all around the world. 

It is understood by us at Let the Elephants Dance, that everyone’s battles with mental health is both personal and yet a universal struggle. Our goal is to demonstrate hope for the daily battle for those who struggle with their mental health, to call-in and stand strong against the unmeasurable injustices that affect mental health, and provide resources whenever possible to those in need. 

We have been proudly partnered with The Canadian Mental Health Association in Toronto and Kids Help Phone since 2016. To this date we have successfully Donated over $32, 000.00 to mental health initiatives in Toronto, ON.

We all come together to share a message of hope and understanding.
