Dr. Catherine Zahn speaks at TEDx Toronto

Last month Dr. Catherine Zahn, CAMH President and CEO, joined other Canadian innovators at the Technology, Entertainment, Design (TEDx) Conference to share her ideas about the future of mental health and addictions.
Drawing from her personal experiences, she spoke about the power to end the discrimination that people with mental illness and addictions face everyday. In order to make this change, she urged the audience to do thee things:
Discover the truth, Discuss it openly and Demand attention to this critical issue.
Her call to action was heard and spread quickly. Within an hour of her presentation, Dr. Zahn was one of the top national trending topics on the social networking site, Twitter.
A rendering of Dr. Zahn was designed based on her talk, and was displayed during the TEDx conference.
TED is a non-profit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. The conference brings together the city's foremost thought leaders, change makers and everyday people from various disciplines. Holding conferences all over the world, TEDx brings together people with ideas that can change the world. Former US President Bill Clinton, singer Bono and environmental activist Jane Goodall are among the past speakers at TEDx. At TEDx Toronto, Catherine shared the stage with playwright Trey Anthony and Centre for Social Innovation Executive Director Tonya Surman, among other enlightening Torontonians.
