We are currently recruiting comics for our Stand Up For Mental Health class beginning on January 16, 2024.
Founded by stand up comic and counselor David Granirer who himself suffers from bipolar, Stand Up For Mental Health is an award-winning program that teaches folks with mental health and addiction issues how to perform stand up comedy all about their mental health and addictions journeys.

The course is 6 months long and classes are in-person. Classes are on Tuesdays from 10:45 am -1:45 PM at a location near the Brentwood Skytrain station.

Cost is by sliding scale, NO ONE is EVER EVER turned away for financial reasons!
