Becca Cala is truly inspiring. This young woman wants to break the stigma around mental health and proves that nothing stands in her way. Besides being diagnosed with Tourettes Syndrome, Pervasive Mental Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and ADHD, she has learned to rise above it and inspires everyone that meets her.

Children’s Mental Health Ontario held a video contest to feature videos that show how we can all take the stigma out of kid’s mental health issues. The winning video was submitted and created by filmmakers Natasha Boshoff and Suaad Issa. They couldn’t have picked a better person than Becca to appear in their video.
