Mental Health affects us all. As our collective knowledge around the subject continues to grow, we recognize the importance of open discussion on the topic. Event organizers play a key part in bringing together people from all walks of life to learn, talk, reflect and engage with others on all issues relating to mental health.

Now is the time to lock in some speakers for your Mental Health event marking the occasion. In this blog, we’re highlighting some of our most requested & thought-leading Mental Health speakers: NSB-Divider

Invisible Wounds of Mental Health

For many, mental health is a reality of their life and profession. From members of the military to first respondents, to public service members, journalists and more. Sadly, many lives have been lost due to suicide. How can we develop better peer support systems to prevent these tragedies?

Bearing witness to the horrors of genocide, and an international community’s disregard for humanity, General Dallaire was grievously injured with post-traumatic stress disorder, resulting in his medical release from the military in 2000. Since then, he has tirelessly worked to raise awareness about mental health issues and PTSD.

In his ‘Mental Health & Invisible Wounds‘ presentation, Dallaire makes clear how the challenges around mental illness affect us all. As mental health wounds are not always visible, Dallaire speaks passionately about how much more needs to be done so that those suffering in silence can not just survive, but thrive. Listen Dallaire discuss mental health talk on Global News Radio:
