The Let’s Talk Hope on Bell Let’s Talk Day on January 29, 2020 isn’t your typical conference. It’s not about just listening to a speaker and then leaving. This is a conference where everyone gets to speak. Every voice is heard – from the student all the way to the CEO.
Mental health is socially created.
Mental health is personal to me. Today, I will help a stranger’s family. He lost his battle with PTSD and died by suicide leaving his wife and two daughters devastated. I’ll be officiating his funeral. My cousin took her own life, depressed after her marriage ended abruptly. An acquaintance is in and out of hospital after repeated suicide attempts.
I want you at this Conference because your voice matters in raising awareness around mental health. It’s important that you be there to hear what’s happening in the lives of our neighbors.
We invite innovators in mental health to share what they are doing to make a difference. Business owners, non-profit leaders, mental health care professionals, teachers, and students are invited to the table to share about mental health from their context. We collaborate together for solutions because mental health is created socially.

A time to hope.
The Let’s Talk Hope conference in Edmonton on January 29, 2020 brings together people from all walks of life to talk and share about mental health from their context. We invite business owners, artists, non-profit leaders, mental health care professionals, teachers and students to come out from their silos to come around the table to talk.
We include a couple of speakers and community highlights and workshops, but the peak of the event is when everyone gets a chance to share. Listen for what is shared in common and what would solve problems.
The community is called to dream together of what steps towards solutions look like. It’s an electric day I really want you to be a part of. It’s time we dream and hope again regarding mental health.

It’s a little confusing as on this page it states that the conference is on Jan 29th, and yet when you click for the early bird registration it states the conference is on Jan 31.
Can you clarify which date please?
The correct date is January 29th, Jennifer. It will be well worth you being there on the correct date.
