HEADS UP! Community Mental Health Summit – Program

Heads Up! Mental Health Summit - Fresh Outlook Foundation

It's about sharing!

Fresh Outlook Foundation

WHY SHARE? Because stories inspire change.

You can inform people about the need for change, only to discover that they repeat or revert to counterproductive behaviours. To move from information to inspiration, and then to the desired transformation, people must first be engaged emotionally. They must “feel” the need for change. Because storytelling helps people do that, every speaker at the Summit will share his/her story and the related insights, ideas, and passions for mentally healthier communities.

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!

Whether you’re an elected official, business owner, nonprofit volunteer, university professor, or student, HEADS UP! will deliver information and inspiration for you and your specific mental health-related challenges, barriers, and opportunities.

And whatever your age, culture, or gender, HEADS UP! will also inform and stimulate vital conversations that will trigger positive change in your communities.

SHARE YOUR SUCCESS STORY!

We’re looking for leading-edge information to share with a mixed audience about emerging trends in all aspects of mental health planning, policies, promotion, prevention, programs, projects, and partnerships… to name just a few. If your health authority, local government, business, nonprofit, educational institution, or consulting firm has a success story to share, please contact us!

PRELIMINARY PROGRAM DETAILS!

The preliminary program framework for our HEADS UP! Community Mental Health Summit has been completed! Please note, the program will not be finalized until early 2020. Download it by clicking here, or see the schedule below.

Check back frequently as more information will constantly be added.

For up-to-date details about topics, speakers, and sponsors, join us today on Facebook and Twitter.

Help us advance the conversation about mental health challenges, successes, and opportunities at the individual, family, workplace, and community scales.
