A note on COVID-19 and Jack Talks:

The Jack Talk has been a staple program at for years, bringing peer-to-peer mental health education to tens of thousands of young people. COVID-19 has forced us to pause in-person Jack Talks. But it's never been more important for young people to have the knowledge and tools they need to look out for themselves and each other. We've introduced the Virtual Jack Talk, which continues to inspire, engage, educate and equip young people with the skills they need to look out for themselves and their peers while living through these extraordinary times. Check it out below. 

Jack Talks are mental health presentations delivered by young people to young people. 

Trained and certified youth speakers use the power of personal stories and mental health education to inspire, engage, educate, and equip young people to look out for themselves and their peers.

Jack Talks start important mental health conversations. They can be booked for schools, community groups, or anywhere youth aged 15-24 may gather. With 120 trained and certified Jack Talks Speakers all over Canada (and counting) we're committed to making Jack Talks happen for anyone, anywhere.
