Description

Welcome to I TALK TO STRANGERS® series of networking events on Mental Health. This series was created in response to Perspective The Short Film, a project by Jay 'Superior' Doodnauth that accounts the mental health challenges minority communities experience day in, day out.

In this series of Tuesday Talks with Strangers - Perspectives on Mental Health, we aim to provide the safe and welcoming space so that everyone in Stranger Nation can meet and continue the conversation on mental illness, as introduced by Perspective The Short Film. The facilitated dialogue is designed to fight the stigma of an illness that affects one in 5 people in Canada. The facilitated small-group discussions is an opportunity to normalize the conversation about this pressing topic and for friends, family and people in society to learn how to best support. All are welcomed.

This event is cross-posted on various social media platforms.

+What is Tuesday Talks with Strangers?

Tuesday Talks is an evening gathering where guests are introduced to fellow strangers in their local community in a fun, social networking fashion. Along with guests from all walks of life, participants explore how talking with other individuals leads to meaningful, lasting relationships in both personal and professional life! There is no admittance fee, all free! The evening is a time to kick back after work in the early part of the week, have fun meeting new people, converse about topics you might not normally talk about, and get inspired!
