Use the form below to request a guest speaker from the Ottawa branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association.
At present (due to COVID-19) we are only able to offer virtual presentations, and demand is currently high.
For presentations related to workplace mental health, we recommend you direct your inquiry to Mental Health Works, or if you wish to begin to implement good mental health practices at your workplace immediately, you can also check out a new toolkit from CMHA Ontario: Return to the workplace: A psychological toolkit for heading back to work.
At CMHA Ottawa, we have on staff a panel of speakers who can deliver single one-hour presentations on general topics related to mental health to organizations located in the greater Ottawa area.
We also offer training programs for professionals, employers, educational institutions and the general public. If you’ve arrived at this page looking for training/education, please follow this link to the CMHA Ottawa Learning Centre.
Please note: The CMHA Ottawa speakers bureau is composed of direct service staff (mental health workers), directors and managers from our agency. To meet your specific needs, requests are processed on a case-by-case basis and we may not be able to accommodate all requests. Please allow for a minimum of five business days for a response, and note we are currently booking presentations approximately two months into the future.
Our billing structure will be explained to you by the communications desk when responding to your request. Your payment will help us in our mandate of delivering case management to qualifying individuals living with severe and persistent mental illness and/or addictions challenges in the Ottawa area.
Thank you for your interest in CMHA Ottawa and promoting mental health for all!
