Minding the Gap: A Conversation on Mental Health & Stigma

Mental illness affects 1 in 5 Canadians but many avoid seeking help because of stigma. Join us on January 30, 2019 (Bell Let’s Talk Day) to have a conversation on mental health, the impact of stigma, and how we can all take action to reduce the stigma. This event will feature Tammie Sutherland (Reporter for CityNews and Breakfast Television), Shayan bell-lets-talk-day-Yazdanpanah (Student and Jack Talks speaker with Jack.org), and Dr. Gursharan Virdee (Psychologist and Researcher at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health) who will speak about their experiences and participate in a panel discussion led by Karim Mamdani (CEO Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences). This event is the first of a three-part series on mental health to be held at the Ismaili Centre, Toronto in 2019.
