The Robb Nash Project is an immersive concert experience that engages young people through the power of music and storytelling. Our presentation addresses topics related to mental health such as depression, anxiety, self-harm, addiction, bullying and suicidal ideation. We balance this serious subject matter in a truly unique way that is not only thought provoking and inspirational but also entertaining and at times humorous. Our shows are hosted in performing arts theatres and arenas from coast to coast and organized with participating schools and communities. We are a registered Canadian charity and schools are invited to attend at no charge with assistance available for transportation costs. We provide comprehensive support to participating schools before, during and after our presentation to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.

Our goal is to bring hope to those who feel like they’re worthless, alone or unloved; to those who are struggling with addiction, depression and suicidal ideation. Through the intrigue of a rock concert, we show that it’s okay to talk about our struggles and our pain and to reach out for help. Our goal is to start those conversations and to bring awareness to the struggles that so many are facing. We work closely with local resources, both at the school level and health-care professional level to ensure that follow up help is available. We have partnered closely with national services that provide additional resources such as Kids Help Phone.
Through his work with the project, Robb was named to the Order of Manitoba and received a Meritorious Service Medal from the Governor General of Canada. The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health named Robb as one of the leading Canadians in the field of mental health work. The project has been recognized and supported by the Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba and the Canadian Mental Health Association across Canada.
