Description

Mental Health: Challenges and Opportunities


In recent years, Canada has made great strides in addressing the stigma surrounding mental illness.


But how do we move beyond discussion to action? How do we ramp up prevention, care and support for those in need?


Join award-winning Globe and Mail Health Columnist André Picard for this breakfast event at The Globe and Mail's new event venue on King Street East as he moderates an expert panel offering insight and solutions.


  • Dexter Nyuurnibe is a former TEDx speaker and mental health advocate. After being hospitalized at the end of his third year at university, Dexter decided it was time to finally open up about what he was silently living with. He believes our individual stories serve to strengthen us, and presented recently at a joint session of teh World Bank and WHO in Washington, DC on behalf of youth mental health organization Jack.org.


  • Dr. Etienne L. Sibille's reseach has found that, at the biological level, there is striking overlap in the molecular pathways associated with depression and other psychiatric and neurodegenerative illnesses and normal aging of the brain. As the Campbell Family Chair in Clinical Neuroscience at CAMH, he is studying the biological bases of brain disorders in order to identify new opportunities in the treatment or prevention of depression.


  • Dr. Vicky Stergiopoulos believes our current system of care for people living with mental illness and addictions is fragmented. This acts as a barrier to meaningfully engaging those with complex health and social needs. Appointed Physician-in-Chief at CAMH in 2016, she says we need to change the system in partnership with service users.


This exclusive event is presented as part of CAMH Difference Makers, 150 Leading Canadians for Mental Health, a national initiative to celebrate and honour people from accross Canada making a difference in mental health. Nominations are open until July 1st. To learn more and nominate a Difference Maker in your community, please visit www.camhdifferencemakers.ca today!
