The organization's service delivery includes peer support groups and presentations programs for both youth and adults.

Paquette promotes a Stigma-Free culture and a Stigma-Free Zone movement across Canada, which aims to create awareness, understanding and acceptance.

Paquette is passionate about educating today’s youth in school and adults in the community about the stigma surrounding mental health and additional societal stigmas that negatively affect people’s perceptions of themselves and others. She shares her passionate personal story of struggle and triumph since her bipolar disorder diagnosis in 2005 throughout multiple venues internationally.

She is an award winning mental health activist, educator, facilitator, speaker and published author. Andrea has presented her story at over 500+ schools, workplaces, community organizations and events, while reaching over 50,000+ people.

Paquette has received the 2019 President's Commendation Award from the Psychiatric Association of Canada. She is the Provincial 2015 Courage To Come Back Award Recipient in the category of Mental Health given by Coast Mental Health, 2013 Mel Cooper Citizen of the Year Award, and the Winner for Youth Mentorship from the National Council for Behavioural Health in Washington, D.C.

Paquette is recognized as the winner for Vancouver Island's Business and Community Award - 2015 Top 20 Under 40 Award. She has also been named as an official spokesperson for the 2016 Faces of Mental Illness Campaign for the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health (CAMIMH).
