Breaking Barriers, February 5-6

The fifth annual Breaking Barriers Jack Summit brought together the next generation of mental health leaders from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Northern Ontario to discuss the most pressing mental health issues they face in the prairies and in rural parts of the country. To protect attendees and organizers’ safety, Breaking Barriers Jack Summit 2021 was an engaging, action-oriented day...online!

Delegates participated in workshops, engaged with keynote speakers and worked with progress-minded folks working across their region to foster understanding, connection and community. The day was spent collaborating on strategies and sharing expertise about mental health advocacy with the ultimate goal of strengthening the mental health movement in the Prairies!
