JFS is thrilled to welcome Michael Landsberg as this year's speaker for our Family Life Education Event.

About this Event

“Imagine if you knew you could save lives by simply telling your story … Together, we can change the stigma that surrounds this disease.”

— Michael Landsberg, CTV News

Join us to hear one of the best-known personalities in Canadian broadcasting, Michael Landsberg, speak about his journey with depression. A vocal advocate of mental health awareness, he explains why mental illness isn’t a weakness —and how, together, we can beat the stigma, fight back, and save lives.

JFS’ Family Life Education programs host enriching and impactful events that address crucial issues faced in daily life.

All ticket proceeds go to support JFS mental health programs in the community.
