Mental Health & Invisible Wounds

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Due to the PTSD he suffered from the horrors of the genocide, Dallaire was medically released from the military in 2000. Since then, he has tirelessly worked on raising awareness about mental health issues and post-traumatic stress disorder. Dallaire’s courage in going public about his own experience with mental health issues gives him undeniable credibility on the issue.

He speaks with compassion and insight on how the challenges and disagreements on treating mental illness can affect all of us. As mental health wounds are not always visible on the exterior, Dallaire speaks on how much more needs to be done so that those suffering in silence can not just survive, but thrive.
