Invest Ottawa hosts experts with lived experience to lead powerful conversations with our community around mental health and wellness.
100% of people are affected, directly or indirectly, by mental illness. That’s the only statistic needed to know that the time is now to talk about mental health.
On January 29 at 6:00 pm, come to Bayview Yards to participate in powerful conversation.
Join us to hear from Maggie Maier, an entrepreneur who will share her professional and personal experiences to help others “get off the anxiety and depression roller coaster.”
After the first talk, Meghan Wills will guide us through an audience-centric panel discussion. She and her fellow panellists have lived experience and now serve as wellness/mental health advocates with holistic approaches to health. Together, they will cover topics including prejudice, discrimination and stigma, and the responsibly we all have to ourselves, our organizations and our communities.
6:30 pm: Welcome
6:40 pm: Keynote Talk and Conversation with Maggie Maier

The goal of this event is to facilitate growth and learning through powerful conversations. Like you, we’re determined to break barriers and dismantle stigmas around mental health.
We hope you can join us.
