Join us to be inspired by a heartfelt message of humanity from one of Canada’s most sought-after speakers. Having faced the challenges of battle and peacekeeping, courageous General Dallaire has many stories to share, and much to say about current issues and challenges around the issues of mental health and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Mr. Dallaire has tirelessly worked on raising awareness about mental health issues and post-traumatic stress disorder. Dallaire’s courage in going public about his own experience with mental health issues gives him undeniable credibility on the issue. This presentation will inspire the audience to break the stigma around mental health. He speaks with compassion and insight on how the challenges and disagreements on treating mental illness can affect all of us. As mental health wounds are not always visible on the exterior, Dallaire speaks on how much more needs to be done so that those suffering in silence cannot just survive but thrive.
