Talk at the Top - October 15 & 16, 2021


What is Talk at the Top? is proud to announce the fifth annual Talk at the Top Regional Jack Summit, which brings together the next generation of mental health leaders and advocates from British Columbia to discuss the most pressing mental health issues you face on the West Coast. 

Given the ongoing public health crisis, and risks that interprovincial and regional travel continues to pose, will be delivering all fall term regional Jack Summits offerings virtually. There may, however, still be opportunity for in-person elements at Talk at the Top, and we will continue to monitor the provincial and federal reopening plans to make these decisions. We will be updating all Summit attendees if we are able to offer in-person or hybrid experiences, so please keep an eye out for that!

At Talk at the Top, delegates can expect to participate in workshops, engage with keynote speakers and other thought leaders, and work with fellow advocates from across their region to foster understanding, connection and community. The day will be spent sharing lived expertise and collaborating on goals and ideas, with the ultimate goal of strengthening the mental health movement on the West Coast!
