The Steelworkers Hall was full on February 11th 2016 with people attending a free public forum about youth mental health, with even more viewers watching the live online video stream at ctvnorthernontario.ca. On Twitter, the forum attracted 600,000 views.
“Healthy Minds, Healthy Youth” was presented by the Northeastern Ontario Health Centre for Children (NEO Kids) at Health Sciences North (HSN) in Sudbury, with support from Bell Let’s Talk and CTV.
The event featured Bell Let’s Talk team members Michael Landsberg of TSN and Canadian professional golfer Andrew Jensen, both of whom spoke about their own battles with depression. They were joined by Dr. Angelita Sanchez, a psychiatrist who works with children and youth at HSN.
