Mental Health 10¢

Canada Post Corporation {2010}. Reproduced with Permission

This domestic stamp is not only beautifully crafted by the legendary design firm Paprika, but has also been designed with a 10-cent surcharge which goes to the Canada Post Foundation for Mental Health. In 2008, Canada Post set out to eliminate the misconceptions associated with mental illness, establishing the Canada Post Foundation for Mental Health, raising $2.5 million so far.

Louis Gagnon of the Montréal-based design firm Paprika said of the design itself, “the stamp features a mental health patient on the path towards recovery. The lines that flow through the stamp cross over one another to represent the plight of a troubled mind moving toward a sense of peace as they rise up the mountain.”
