Trained youth speakers will share tools, tips, and experiences to help shift the way students think about mental health.

The Jack Talks program uses contact-based education and peer-to-peer outreach to teach students across Canada that we all have mental health and we all need to care for it. Using a professionally developed curriculum, young speakers will help audiences to understand mental health and how to look out for each other and ourselves. They will also inspire audiences to keep the conversation going with concrete steps to create lasting change in their community.
