Delve into the complex world of mental health with Lakehead University’s TALL Lecture Series

According to Statistics Canada, more than 5 million people in Canada in 2022 met the diagnostic criteria for a mood, anxiety or substance use disorder, with the prevalence of mood and anxiety disorders increasing substantially over the previous 10 years. The same study, released by Statistics Canada last fall, found that the proportion of Canadians aged 15 years and older with a generalized anxiety disorder doubled from 2012 to 2022, with similar increases seen for major depressive episodes and bipolar disorders.

As the world continues to grapple with the aftermath of the global pandemic, it's becoming increasingly evident that another crisis is looming: the mental health pandemic.

Join us every Wednesday morning from 9:30 to 11:30 am, starting April 17, 2024, and continuing until May 15, 2024. This spring, Third Age Learning Lakehead will delve into the complex world of mental health. Featuring renowned academic leaders and professionals working in the field of mental health, we’ll examine topics like substance abuse disorders, innovations in treatment, the impact of mental illnesses on family members, and resiliency.
