I got my butt up to CTV super early today to attend Canada AM’s Town Hall on Youth Mental Health for Bell Let’s Talk Day.
I was invited to ask a question and the following link (I don’t know if it will play outside of Canada) is the video of the Q&A! I’m at 6:50.
I had a few issues with the town hall (and I had problems with their last one too).
- It’s supposed to be on youth mental health but there was only ONE youth on the panel
- Bell Let’s Talk Day is supposed to be for all mental health issues but the show only focused on depression. It’s always “depression and mental illnesses”….depression is a mental illness, it’s not it’s own thing.
- It’s all still too depressing
I’m going to send an email to the producer and mention some of these things, politely, to maybe inspire the next event?!
