Sheridan’s Health and Wellness Peer Mentors are pleased to present the first-ever SHERIDANtalk: Breaking Barriers on Mental Health event, which will be held on March 12th, 2014, from 6-9:30pm in the Marquee at the Trafalgar campus. Doors will be open at 5:30pm, and a community marketplace will be open as well in the lobby out front of the Marquee to learn about local community resources and speak with local experts.
Modelled after the well-known TEDtalks, and building off of the Canada-wide “Unleash the Noise” Mental Health Innovation Summit organized through The Jack Project, SHERIDANtalk is bringing in innovators in the Mental Health world to come speak to the Sheridan community. These include Eric Windeler and Erin Hodgins from the Jack Project; Mark Henick, a speaker from TEDxToronto 2013; and Arthur Gallant, one of the ‘Faces of Mental Illness’ from the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness & Mental Health, a campaign sponsored by Bell as part of the Bell Let’s Talk initiative.
